08.04. OMG! Little Penguins (the artists formerly known as Fairy Penguins)

I have no idea why we don’t call them Fairy Penguins any more.

But they are absolutely adorable.

They surf up on to the beach and then waddle up in groups through the dunes, stopping every now and then to take a break.

As they go, they chatter and bicker and waddle.

It’s wonderful.

I do have to say though, that I am rather conflicted about the Penguin Parade itself. Do they enjoy having hundreds of people there every night, making noise, creating light and carrying on.

At least now they have completely banned photography to stop the paparazzi effect of flashes disorienting the little guys.  

Hence a postcard instead of a photo.

Definitely worth a visit.
