No visit to Cape Town is complete without taking a day trip to Simon’s Town. This picturesque place is one of South Africa’s oldest towns and home to the famous Boulder’s Beach where you can spot - and swim alongside - African penguins 🐧 And don’t miss the chance to eat at one of the great fresh seafood restaurants around the harbour.
Who can resist that adorably scruffy face? McGee is an older guy who is making up for lost time and still has plenty of spunk for his age! •
Spotted abandoned in a poor condition and scavenging for bits of food along Baden Powell Drive, McGee was more than happy to hitch a ride to @tearsanimalrescue to begin a new chapter in his life. •
He’s a happy-go-lucky, playful and affectionate chap who’s all smiles and wags! When he’s not lounging in the sun or snuggling up next to you on the couch to watch a good movie, McGee enjoys going for walks around town. Could you give McGee the happily-ever-after he deserves?
