The town itself is probably quite interesting, but the harbour is your typical ...

We went into this little private alcove and a couple of penguins were swimming and we got pictures of them right up close. It was so much fun seeing them waddle around. At Cape point there was random wildlife around we saw ostrich on the beach and antelope on the cliff. Actually we couldn’t figure out what the antelope were at first. We thought they ...
