Woke up and saw all these posts........now I'm starting to think I may have created unnecessary anticipation, which could lead to disappointment and rebellion if this "Quickie
" doesn't live up to your standards.
Anyway......on with the story.......if you decide that this is a boring "Quickie" then that's your problem.......I'm having fun.
Before I go any further......on this trip I saw more rhino than rooibokke.......and I know I can't post a word about where I saw them due to the poaching issue. Being a quickie I'm not really sure how I am going to tell you about all these
. Mods - am I allowed to post rhino pics without location, or is that also off limits?
OK then - at Kruger Gate I was. Perhaps important for you to know that this quickie was all about my own pleasure. As you can recall, I did some work in Lydenburg in the morning and now found myself on my ace with this beauty stretched out ahead of me (Kruger that is). The fever had driven me to delirium, which meant I gave the hippos under the Kruger Gate bridge only a glance (almost drove over a German tourist on the bridge however). And yes (cheetah2111), can you believe I didn't even stop for a fishy pic on the bridge - feeling quite bad about it now
Still firmly under the spell of the fever I bought a packet of chips and a cool-drink at Kruger Gate and writing this now I realize that the first seeds of my new philosophy about Kruger were planted here and given water by what I saw at the gate. Nothing bad, people were friendly...........but............something was brewing in my mind. More about this later.
Immediately right onto the S3. One part of me was saying I need to get off the main road to Skukuza, another was saying that driving so close to the park boundary was silly.........and around the first corner I came across this little magician trying to run over the road.
I say magician becuase if this little tortie knew what effect he/she had on my fever he/she would be sending me a bill
Ok peeps - more later. I need to go hoist the yellow for the Rietvlei braai later today........
