So far, so good!
I follow the walkway around the bend, imagining scenes like these (with hotter guys):

Still, the walkway provides good views of the penguins.
(Penguins molt. That’s the reason some of these guys look pretty mangy; in a few months they will all be sleek and fully waterproof once again.)
I definitely can now claim to have seen penguins!
Of course, penguins aren’t the only wildlife here. Among other birds, huge flocks of comorants swirl above – and land on – the boulders.
They are mesmerizing.
Further out, sailboats glide just this side of the horizon.
This would be a good place to spend the day.
Maybe I’d even find spots where I could actually commune with the penguins.
