Thank you for reading and thank you for your encouraging comments
I really appreciate them.
Shhh...don't say a word ...G thinks I am working, in the meanwhile...I'm on the forum
We left TR excited to be heading for Nossob. I took a stroll past the camping area to meet G&M who had driven to fetch the permit. A vehicle stopped me in my track and one of the occupants said ”Hello…, you must be Dreamer” It was Jo who had spotted our yellow ribbon and G had told her I was walking towards them . Thanks Jo for taking the trouble to drive back to come and find me. Just a pity time was short. I felt sorry for you that your holiday was over.

This beautiful owl seen just before Melkvlei
Spotted Eagle Owl
Also, a beautiful mole snake but we were uncertain if it was injured or perhaps dead
We stopped at Melkvlei for our lunch break. I could have stayed there all day. It was cool in the shade, quiet and the surrounds really beautiful.
Sometimes it is far easier to take pics of the game and birds, they seem more obliging. Anyway, at least I got 50 % paying attention to the camera this time!!

Something we had noticed this trip was that many, in fact, lots of the waterholes looked like this. A lot of water pumped that overflowed from the actual waterhole to the surrounding area. If my memory does not fail me, this one was Kaspersdraai.
Same with Maries se Draai, water everywhere
We arrived at Nossob and received big welcome from Gert. He sure has a good memory, recalling the previous visits when we met him at Grootkolk.
I was eager to get to the hide and see what was coming and going. For me, there is nothing more pleasant when staying at Nossob to spend time alone in the hide. It’s also a great place to meet up with others and hear what has been going on in and around the area. Must say, I think it is a pity that the new waterhole does not have a more natural look. I know they say they had reasons to build it like this but you can’t compare it to the may other attractive man made waterholes throughout the park (OK, that’s my niggle said and done !!)
Blackbacked Jackal seen from the hide
We took a short drive North to Cubitjie Quap and M spotted this lovely cobra along the side of the road. When we reversed while looking on the ground to see where he had moved to, we got the shock of our lives when we suddenly realised he was eye level!!
We made our way back to camp to light the fire and await the delivery of the delicious roostekoek. So delicious they were eaten before I could take a pic to show everyone here what they look like! Not to worry though, we will be back again and will remember to order extra…..just so I can get a picture
