Thursday the 28th of October 2004, we left Cape Town early to visit the Cape Peninsula. Our first stop was at Boulder's Beach... a fantastic series of sandy beaches with huge pink rounded boulders... home to a permanent colony of over 3000 Jackass Penguins. After a good laugh looking at these funny birds, we had a good breakfast in Simon's Town.
Around noon, we reached the tip of the Cape Peninsula, the famous Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. We walked up to the old and then to the new lighthouse at Cape Point. The guys then walked from Cape Point to the Cape of Good Hope, where I picked them up to slowly drive back north towards Cape Town along the west coast...
On Thursday the 28th of October 2004, the South African Museum IZIKO in Cape Town opened a new permanent exhibition dedicated to Sharks, Shark World. This new exhibit was sponsored by the Save Our Seas Foundation who is very active in sponsoring Shark research projects in South Africa and around the world. Michael was invited for the opening ceremony...
