A Formal Affair

On the img_3322 img_3319img_3290 img_3311 img_3298 img_3297way to the Cape of Good Hope, there is a stop at Boulders Beach where a bunch of suited up penguins hang out.  Some of them seem to be hiding out inside little huts.  Others are bopping around the beach.  Others paddle into the water for a dip.

These are African penguins, aka “jackass” penguins. Named not for their Johnny Knoxville-like antics, but for a loud sound they sometimes make that sounds like a donkey.
