Goooood evening mites, from Lower Sabie :dance:

Most of the pics I am posting are of very low quality to save bandwidth this side, and also taken with my cellphone to make for easy posting on the forum and to send to family etc. When we get home I will share the pics off my 'proper' camera.

Proof of the cheetah sighting and our early morning coffee view, the other way from the misty side :wink:

Since I posted this morning, we have made our way down here to LS. The camp is fairly full, so we did not have the greatest selection of camping sites to choose from. SO and I dallied about trying to make up our minds which one would be best to set up home for the next 7 nights. Finally we chose one tucked away in the 'bush' with good shade.

Setting up camp on a hot day is .... well a good excuse for something cold to drink while busy with the task. We have been in somewhat of a muddle up to now with having had the kids' belongings with us until they flew out. These included a queen size bed duvet, a full set of golf clubs, plus their rather substantial luggage. (The kids did not camp though, I still need to train my DILs in the joys of camping .... but we shared a vehicle. ) So, it was good to be able to sort and set up camp as 'per normal' today. Here is a pic, carefully composed as I also needed to do some washing, and do not want my unmentionables hanging out to dry on the forums :roll:
Image

Nothing like choccie for energy to set up camp .... melted or not!
Image

Lower Sabie is all about Sunset Dam for us. We just love to sit there and take pics and just watch. This evening the full cast was out. An huge ellie, impies, giraffe, wildebeest, the baboons wending their way home, the crocs and of course, the noisy hippos, and not to forget all the water birds.

Image

Image

And a very special sighting to end off the day, a fellow YR at Sunset Dam - Ilovemeerkats!!! And my pressie, thanks SO much ILM, we are proud to display it on our vehicle!

Good morning from Sunset Dam!! It is a magnificent Kruger morn. The sun has kissed the bush hello, there is a low mist over the dam, the hippos are back from their night's foraging and the birds are singing with joy.

Have a lovely day everyone!
