Animal Wednesday / Capetown

Went to Capetown for 5 days and I took my brother along

We did the highlights and had a great time.
 I took a lot of pictures but here are the ones with the animals ;) 
 A blesbok
 Ostriches in a farm
 I always love their eyes

 Baboons on our way to Cape Point
 I love them
 They seem so friendly and harmless..........
 My brother thought this was a plastic one, but believe me it was real
 Birds waiting for crumbs to fall,,,,,,,,,,,
 Ostriches in the wild
 Near Cape of good Hope
 Penguins at Simonstown
A lot of them................

We had a lot of fun and we enjoyed Capetown. 
I came home today just in time to post these for Animal Wednesday.
Still tired from a 11.20 hour flight.
So I will go to bed early ;)

Happy Animal Wednesday :)
