May 12 – Crocodile Bridge

Today was bush walk day and I was up and ready to go nice and early. I managed a picture of the beautiful moon and tried for whatever planet was in view, but without my tripod, that was a failure. There were 7 of us plus Oscar and Jaco (our guides). One couple from Australia,… Continue reading May 12 – Crocodile Bridge


What you see today, is what I saw When Chester and I walked today and that was variety!   It was 10C when we walked!  Wow – what a relief and it didn’t feel any cooler than yesterday’s 16C.  I know my friends in Africa would have coats on along with hot water bottles and blankets… Continue reading Variety

Red River March 28th

Chester and I had our morning walk along the Red River this morning under a sunny sky and with a temperature of -6C.  We are starting to see signs of changes in the river now, so I may be taking a few more pictures of it again. I love how the snow has melted enough… Continue reading Red River March 28th
