They even took us to see the new "Madagascar 2 - Return to Africa" movie at a local theatre.
Together with our friends Parker, Hailey, Owen and Tess, we explored Cape Town and saw lots of cool things. One day we visited a penguin colony. Yes, they have penguins in Africa called, you guessed it, African Penguins! On another day, we went to the top of Table Mountain. It's a flat mountain with views of the whole city and ocean below. Cape Town is known for Table Mountain and when the clouds are covering it, which happens a lot, they say that it has a tablecloth on it.
After Cape Town we went to a cool place called Grootbos with our friends. Before I tell you that story, I have to tell you this one ...
Before our friends came, we went to Grootbos for a day and went whale watching. We saw humpback and bottlenose dolphins, cape fur seals, penguins, a great white shark and southern right whales ... what they call the "marine big five." We saw six mother whales and their babies, which are called calves. At one point, a baby calf rolled over the mom, which we got a really good view of.
Now we're at Grootbos again with our friends and we're having a great time. We went into a special cage and saw great white sharks. The water was so cold that I didn't stay in very long. That was ok though since the water was so clear. I was able to lookout from the top deck of the boat to see the sharks below. We saw five different sharks altogether. They were between seven and nine feet long. When I saw the sharks, I was so amazed by how big they were. Great white sharks are huge!
We also went to an aquarium. Look at me "swimming" with the fish.
Everything is so nice hanging out with my friends. We all can't wait to go on the safari next. I'm hoping we get to see wild dog. I'll let you know in my next blog!
