The Boulders may be a designated nature reserve, but that only restricts people entering penguin nresting areas, and doesn't prevent the little darlings going walkabout! Penguins have taken up residence most places in Seaforth (the suburb of Simon's Town that abuts Boulders Beach) and although they lie low during the day when there are people around, they are very much in evidence after dark.
These two were out jaywalking along the road linking Seaforth to the main road every evening we were there, and live in the adjacent stormwater drain. So if you're driving in this area after dark, be especially cautious and remember that they most certainly have right of way!
