Nkulu, Carol, Jeannie, Tessa I am so pleased to see that you are ready and kitted out for the adventure. Remember, this is wild country. We might even have to climb a hill or three.

Make sure your bootlaces are tied, Tessa. There is a lovely walk ahead.

Nkulu, Goronto... we are going to have an absolutely splendid experience.

You have probably seen many interesting things in the bush, but how many have seen a worm this size?

To be quite honest, it gives me the heebie geebies. :big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

Indeed, Carol, as much as we need worms, we also need the beauty they feed. A lovely Mount Zebra beauty.

Lets continue our walk.

I hope that you noted that you were invited at the start. You will have to join, regardless. I love Olive Schreiner. An amazing woman, but rather a sad life.

Carol, keep those boots strapped. :thumbs_up: There are hills to climb.

It all seems so exciting....Hope my coughing won't disturb the peace :wink: ...Water bottle filled may have to take a rest in between as that hill seems a bit mean for me today!!! :hmz:

Oh dear, Trrp, so sorry to hear about the coughing. :( Have some cyber medicine. :gflower: :k

Maybe, the Cheetah will think its the warning bark of a buck and come searching. You can be our cherished secret weapon. :hmz:

Thanks MM :thumbs_up: ...Almost 100% again to what I have been, just the lingering cough spells at times.

Glad to see the cough may have its uses though :lol: :lol:
