Bathing Beauties

Boulders Beach, Simonstown, South Africa

Boulders beach has as far as I am aware the only mainland breeding colony of Jackass penguins in the world.  I had the good fortune to visit this beach in 1997 when you could walk among the penguins as they traversed the sandy beach on their way to the sea.  They cared not a jot for us and we marvelled at the experience.  Things have changed, it is now highly commercialised, expensive and the magic has gone.  Tourism has increased a hundred fold and parades of people walk guided trails amidst thousands of warning signs not to stray from the path.  The penguins are still there but the behaviour of visitors has deterioated with folk attempting selfies with iphones on sticks, cajoling them out with bread, screaming and braying like donkeys at them, all in the best possible taste) and all to elicit that "unique-not" once in a lifetime shot of themselves two x two raised fingers and inane grin of their faces with a terrified penguin in the background.  This was a peaceful moment just before closing time.
