Penguin Plod at Cape Recife

There were so much on in Port Elizabeth this past weekend that it would have been humanly impossible for one person to go to everything.  On Saturday there were three fun runs, the official opening of Route 67 (I will still go and photograph all of it to post on here), the re-opening of the restored Pearson Conservatory in St George's Park (will pop by there with the camera soon as well), the city's first Gay Pride Parade (oh how I wish I had time to go and take photos there), the New Brighton Wine Festival and the Northern Arts Festival, while on Sunday it was the first Nelson Mandela Bay Urban Run (an urban obstacle coarse over 12km which I want to do myself next year).  Anyway, my event of choice was the third annual Penguin Plod at Cape Recife.  It was a 5 km fun walk, half of which was on the beach, hosted by SAMREC and done in aid of the fantastic work they do in the rescue and rehabilitation of the African Penguins in and around Algoa Bay.


  1. That looks fantastic. Did you see any pengiuns? PE sounds a great place to be!

  2. A very busy and fun weekend in the city. I love living here!!!
    It was brought even more home when running through the city centre. We forget how beautiful it actually is.
