Winnipeg to Vancouver – Heading Home, day 3 & 4

It didn’t take long to get to Edmonton and since it was still morning, I thought I should find the Zoo and explore it. My GPS failed me though and although it got me fairly close (as I found out the next day), but it left me on a dead end street, saying “you have… Continue reading Winnipeg to Vancouver – Heading Home, day 3 & 4

May 28 – Tamboti to Talamati

Very cloudy this morning, but it was fairly bright. It had rained a bit during the night, but not much, so everything was just a little damp. First we have my cloudy morning look at the day from my deck. Then the Wildebeest in the usual spot stood still for a photo. Soon after I… Continue reading May 28 – Tamboti to Talamati

May 24 – Letaba

I was up bright and early this morning and ready for my drive to Mopani to see if they still have the internet available for use (for a fee). Had a Helmeted Guineafowl roadblock soon after leaving the gate. It was still too dark to get their pictures though. This is the first time there… Continue reading May 24 – Letaba

May 19 – Satara to Olifants

As I left this morning, the first critters were the Impalas that seem to live at the gate at Satara. Soon after were the Wildebeests that are usually in their places too. The first pictures were of a Vulture Tree.  Next were some Zebras who turned their backs on me, but I took a picture… Continue reading May 19 – Satara to Olifants

May 18 – Satara

I started off this foggy morning with a Helmeted Guinea Fowl road block. Guess they heard that I mentioned that I hadn’t been seeing them around Satara. The sun soon rose with a beautiful sun rise and cleared up the fog for a nice drive. Today, I had decided to drive south a bit to… Continue reading May 18 – Satara

May 9 – Pretoriuskop

Our morning drive got out a bit late this morning due to the fact that several of the people going were not prepared – either did not complete the forms or did not have their forms and then many were unable to stop talking long enough for our Ranger, Pet to explain the rules. We… Continue reading May 9 – Pretoriuskop

Bug Day

It was 19C with 98% humidity when Chester and I walked along the Red River this morning.  It is only supposed to get up to 26C this afternoon, but with that much humidity, I closed the windows and turned the air conditioner on when we got back home again.    It had rained last night, but… Continue reading Bug Day

Stuff

I love days like this.  It is very pleasant walking in the morning with a temperature of 16C (which also lets the house cool down overnight) and then it is going up to 25C by the afternoon (not too hot like last week).  We may get some rain today, but they are just talking about… Continue reading Stuff

Believe it or Not.

Believe it or not, but my living room finally has all the pieces of furniture in their new spots!  There are a couple of things not finished yet – like finding new homes or spots for all the stuff that managed to accumulate in the room – but a couple of hours sitting down and… Continue reading Believe it or Not.

A Cool Morning

For the first time in over 2 weeks, I turned the air conditioner off last night.  Since the humidity is so high, there wasn’t any use turning it off even if the temperature was dropping a bit below 20C overnight because it would have to work harder to get rid of the humidity the next… Continue reading A Cool Morning
