We decided to walk to Boulders Beach to see the African penguin colony. The African penguins are really cute and quite small. Michael (dad) got some great photos before we were invaded by a load of Japanese tourists.
When we got back to the hotel, the hostess came rushing to tell us that the maid had a real fright rushing out of our room saying that a baboon had got into the room (they are a real nuisance here) but actually it was only 'Daveed' my baboon we bought from Sanbona - luckily she saw the funny side and now I have bought a snake for my window, no don't ask that's another story!
Once we returned back to the hotel, we had a swim in the little pool for our use. Thought you might like to see some photos of it, bearing in mind the boutique hotel is called The Boat House.
