I am wishing you a wonderful day today, enjoy every minute. :thumbs_up:

Sadly a family matter has cropped up and I cannot attend. :( I will be with you in spirit though. I am sure that it is going to be a wonderful success.

Please remember the :cam:

Heksie is reporting in from Rietvlei:
It is 10:35 and I'm waiting @ Maraisdam for the mites to arrive...tick-tock-tick-tock seems I'm having brunch @ my lonesome, at least mathewis will keep me company :hmz:
Was a great morning with 5 lifers as well as my first ever bushpig and then the cherry on the cake... Mating ostriches which I got on video and cam :dance:
Hopefully the mites are getting out of their beds now to join in on the festivities this afternoon :pray:

Heksie is signing off now...

Hi guys, I had such a fun day yesterday and I hope all of you did who came to Rietvlei. Met some new friends and renewed friendship with others, and enjoyed everyone's lekker food. :dance: :dance: :dance:

A big thank you to Mads for all the organising you did beforehand, and for taking us out on the night drive. Especially as you nearly got drowned in the rain :D We saw some lovely things and I learned stuff I didn't know before. :gflower: :gflower: A special thank you for the jumping eyes. :dance:

Welcome home to the Crested family and a very special thank you to Val for 'making it' to the meet even though you weren't feeling great. Hope you're feeling better today. :gflower: :gflower: Lovely to meet Crested Chick and so glad that you were able to come on the night drive. Hope you enjoyed that.

I will post some pics later when I have got them downloaded and sorted out.
