Oh dear, think I am in trouble for taking soooo long to post the next episode!
so sorry about that but I am so busy of late and the days and weeks just fly by!
but I do thank you all for the wonderful comments and for being so patient, well most of you!
so here's a big
to Sparrow, MM, Carol, Val, Jock, Jeannie, Tawny, Barry, Trrrp, Hilda, Scotty, Pumbaa, Philip, anne-marie,
for your continued support.
Right lets get the bus back on the road!May 28th
We didn't go in too early today and had a relaxing start to the day and some breakfast before departing into the park.
but first up was a little feathered visitor to the lodge.LargeS25
A lovely bush of flowering Impala Lilies
that we couldn't resist taking a pic of.Large
Then when Jock is in the car there are always going to be pics of her favourite animals!Large
and who can resist these beauties?Large
Crossing the causeway over the little streams and rivers we see plenty of Water Monitor Lizards
with this one looking most comfortable on its particular rock.Large
and these "twin" Terrapins Large
Not too much more to be seen so we find ourselves at Lower Sabie for a leg stretch and something to drink.
On the way back down our route takes us along the S130, Gemondwane Road
and onto the little water hole that often produces such great sightings.
Today was no exception and with still a lot of water there for this time of year we see a pair of WarthogsLargeLarge
and also some Ellies
who after having their drink Large Large
decided a good dust bath was in order!LargeLargeLarge
Soon time dictated that we had to move on from the tranquil scene and continue onwards, so it was along the S137
and that is where we came across a little Vervet Monkey
who was clearly on duty and could not have been very comfortable on such a sharp and pointed lookout post.Large
as he soon abandons his post and does his watch from the ground!Large
lots of very majestic Kudu
were to be seen on this road.Large
Turning right onto the S28
we come across a lovely tusker and Jock's camera goes wild! LargeLargeLargeLarge
Next up a stately Giraffe
right on the edge of the road and we sit and watch him as he goes about his browsing with such a dextrous mouth that can cope when need be with monster size thorns. LargeLargeLarge
Back at the lodge a large Croc
lies in the river.Large
then it was sundowner time!Large
and as a last little pic, especially Carol who I have been promising for so long,
one of the us sitting squinting into the bright sun, well I am anyway, so you can see what Klystron, Jock and myself look like! Large
Pics nearly ready for the next episode so hopefully it won't be such a long delay between postings!
