Journal Entry:
Got the car back!!! To celebrate (and verify) the cars completed repairs we set off for Boulders Beach (penguins again!) with Margaret, Dean, Craig, Joy, and Robbie. Spent a couple hours at Boulders, but it was very windy. Found the far beach that we'd missed at each previous visit - hundreds of penguins - including some body surfing.

Back in Cape Town Margaret, Dean, Craig, Joy, Simon, Robbie, and I met up with Marius, and Linda at the great pizza restaurant they took me to the first time we went for diner.
