Flowers at Kildonan Park

Last year I was at Kildonan Park frequently while anticipating my hot air balloon ride, but this year I had not been there at all until this morning.  They have beautiful flower beds there and I decided it was time to take a look (and some pictures). There happened to be a wedding party taking… Continue reading Flowers at Kildonan Park

Assiniboine Park Conservatory

On the same day that I went to Fort Whyte Alive and saw the adorable fawns, I also went to the Conservatory at Assiniboine Park.  I still had time to kill before the volunteer event at the zoo there. The Conservatory is such a nice place to spend some time – the air is fresh,… Continue reading Assiniboine Park Conservatory

June 9 – 10: The Journey Home

My last African sunrise. The morning started off cloudy and the sun was fighting to show itself again, but made a nice early morning sky. This is my last few hours in the park and I am taking a very slow drive to Skukuza, where I will have a late breakfast or an early lunch… Continue reading June 9 – 10: The Journey Home
