June 7 – Berg en Dal

Today was the day to meet Gerda, Janine and Christy at the Skukuza golf course restaurant for lunch. I met Janine last time I was here 5 years ago, but although I’ve known Gerda and Christy for many years, this was our first meeting. I had plenty of time to get there, but I left… Continue reading June 7 – Berg en Dal

May 29 – Talamati

I heard Lions roaring early this morning, but no sign or noise from them once I was on my way. The sun made a pretty decent attempt at making a nice sunrise this morning.

A trip to Target – Canadian Target doesn’t seem to measure up to American Target. A Mango… Continue reading More of This and That

Grey Squirrel

We have 2 different types of squirrels that hang around my yard.  One is the little red squirrel and I have shown pictures of one of them before.  A larger grey squirrel was in my yard this morning and I took some pictures of him through the window.  It is a dull cloudy day, so… Continue reading Grey Squirrel
