If you have more material you'd like to post on TravelGumbo in the coming months, it would be our pleasure to host it. Hope you had a...

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, January 27, 2015: Breaking the winter blues at the Calgary Zoo

It's important to teach the children that winter is there to be enjoyed too. It's never bad weather - just the wrong clothes !

That's a good point, GarryRF! People who live in places with cold climates do adapt and most involve their kids in out door activities -- winter or summer. For example, downhill skiing is very popular. But that walk with the penguins intrigues me. I've never heard of this except, of course, in Antarctica. Need to go by and check it out sometime.

Yes, think about what items would fit well for thumbnail images that people could use as avatars. We can create a bunch, and I do have a number of penguin photos that fit the bill.

Looks like a great day out for all the family. My kids and grandkids love being hands on with creatures. Interaction with young people builds a foundation for their life. Growing up without fears.

Excellent article and photos. I was on an official tour of South Africa when I visited Cape Town. Unfortunately Cape Point wasn't on the itinerary. Maybe I will get the opportunity to return and visit this interesting and picturesque location!

Hi Marilyn, thanks for your comment. It really works out well as a day trip. Very recommended for your next visit to Cape Town.

I agree, excellent article and photos. I lived in Cape Town in the early 1980s, and there were no penguins at Boulders until 1982. One other good place to see them is Betty's Bay, which is the other side of False Bay, on the coast road to the whale watching town of Hermanus.
