Today we went to Hout Bay to visit a seal colony with our tour guide Alexei. Our guide Alex was incredibly knowledgeable and very outgoing and friendly! It was a day full of activities and fun including, visiting the African penguins at Boulders Beach, bike riding at the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Unfortunately I do not know how to ride a bike so I could not join my classmates. However, I did get a chance to see a ostrich which is rare this time of season and our tour guide Alexei was so talkative, informative, and cute. I didn’t mind at all being in his company. We stop at the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve Center to step up lunch. Dr. Murphy and I went to explore and saw bontebonk, gecko, and tortoise. There was more bike riding after lunch but more individuals decided not to ride anymore so only Dr. Bredesen, Anna, and Rachel kept riding. While we The views from the light house are astonishingly beautiful! You have an almost 360 degree view of the oceans. we were able to see a Bontebonk, Ostrich, and some more bamboos. While touring we even saw a cluster of bamboos and one just laid in the middle of the road blocking traffic. The hike to the Light House was beautiful and amazing. Our guide did an amazing job informing us on the local history, animal species and plant diversity. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. As we leaving, I just enjoy the beautiful scenery on the way home.
