Center Stage: South Africa Tour Day 4

 

Glee Club

Freshman Blake Vogt pauses for a quick picture at Maiden's Cove. Maiden's Cove was the first stop on our tour of the cape peninsula which began at 8:30am this morning.


Glee Club

We traveled along the magnificent Marine Drive to Hout Bay where we enjoyed some free time to shop in the market. A sea lion gets up close and personal!


Glee Club

The market at Hout Bay also allowed Glee Clubbers to try out their bargaining skills and pick up a few handmade souvenirs.


Glee Club

Upon arriving at Boulders Beach we were all surprised to find some unusual wildlife. African Penguins!


Glee Club

Because of their donkey-like call, the African Penguins were previously named the Jackass Penguins.

The Glee Club seniors and Steve Schlenk of the PMO staff enjoy lunch at The Black Marlin Restaurant. The historical building, once a whaling station, offers incredible views right along the coastline.


Glee Club

Traveling through the Table Mountain National Park we were able to spot one of Africa's most famous birds, the ostrich!


Glee Club

The Glee Club, families and friends snap another group photo in the Cape of Good Hope, not too far from the southern-most point of the African continent.


Glee Club

After climbing up a mountain, the men sing a few tunes, including 'Sittin' on Top of the World.'


Glee Club

The Cape of Good Hope boasts some perfectly incredible beaches.


Glee Club

Perhaps too perfect for the Glee Club to pass by without carving the Purdue "P" in the sand.


Glee Club

After the day's many adventures, our return trip to the hotel was delayed by a pack of stubborn baboons who would not get out of the road. We snapped a few pictures as we waited for them to yield to our coaches!



*Tomorrow morning we're off to Kruger National Park. Our internet access may be limited, but you can expect to see many pictures from our safari adventures as soon as we arrive in Johannesburg on Monday, June 2!
