South African Penguins

aimee_song_penguins_south_africaOne of the many incredible experiences in South Africa included seeing penguins at Boulders Beach! I didn’t even know there was such a thing as warm weather penguins, so my sister and I were really fascinated by these adorable creatures! We actually got a lot closer to the penguins than you can see in the photos (a few feet away), but we were too busy trying to have them come to us that when they actually did I couldn’t get a close-up picture of them. Have you guys ever seen the movie ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ with Jim Carrey? Well, since ‘Happy Feet’ and ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ I’ve always wanted my own army of adorable penguins, and seeing them in person was such a special moment and still puts a huge grin in my face. They were just as cute in person as I imagined! aimee_song_cape_town_penguinsaimee_song_cape_town_south_africa_penguinsaimee_song_south_africa_printed_skirtThis day we also went to Cape of Good Hope which is basically the most south-western point of the African continent where we also saw wild ostriches. aimee_song_south_africa_ostriches

I wore a bikini top from Maaji swimwear and I loved the super flare-y shape of my T-bags Los Angeles skirt (seen here) so much that I got it in a different print! aimee_song_cape_town_south_africa_2aimee_song_cape_town_south_africa

  12. This is a pretty fabulous outfit, especially for meeting penguins! But can I just say that you were WAY to close to those ostriches?! Aren’t they supposed to be horrible and aggressive and ABSURDLY FAST?!

    Looks like a great trip!

  58. Beautiful photos! I remember a childhood experience that my younger brother and I were invited to meet a few “famous” (penguins that have been in various films and television productions) and it was just a dream come true! Such a special memory that I will always treasure…penguins are such adorably fascinating creatures.
