Penguin rescue

The 24/01/09 me an my wife went to the beach in Simons town,

(South Africa ) with the intention to have a relaxing

day in the sun.

On arrival we saw a group of people busy with some kind

of cleaning up operation , on closer inspection we realized that

hundreds of penguins had been in some kind of accident in oily water.

What can I say? ….we landed up helping to clean the poor animals.

Job done and we feel good.
