We had a full and enjoyable weekend . . .
Lize went on a camping adventure at the sea (Betty's Bay) for three days
Meanwhile we visited the African Penguin Colony at Betty's Bay . . .
Penguin chicks basking in the sun
From hatching to about 90 days of age the chicks loose their fluff and gain blue feathers
Some interesting facts on African Penguins :
* Penguins have an average height of 1/10th of the average human's height. Penguins weigh between 2 and 4 kilograms
* Plumage and facial markings can be used to distinguish between adults and juveniles. Juveniles are entirely blue-grey colour and lack the white facial markings and black breastband of the adults
*The Penguins can reach a speed of up to 2 km/h when swimming and can dive as deep as 130 meters. A dive last for up to 5 minutes while feeding
And we visited friends living at the sea side village Sandbaai (Sand Bay)
While there I helped Annet to create a blog and Claude kept Norbert company
