Tuesday-PC-Wk135_ Memories

~~~~~~

 

It was a toss-up but decided to stay in Africa

for my memories post

Scuba diving in Botswana.

 

The longest Rhino horn my eyes have sighted

Our first close encounter with lions.

Not sure who got the biggest shock…our driver or the lioness.

‘Limpy’ as she was known was on the track around a corner

and very nearly was run over.  But she settled

about 15-20 feet away and posed for photos.

A zebra crossing in Kruger National Park.

And last, but by no means least…the cubs.Meet Nosy and Rosy…my name for these two cubs.

Their mother, Limpy, shooed  them down to  watch the strange tourists

on the condition they sat on the elephant dung

which was about 10-15 feet from us.

This was an unexpected, last night, game drive.

We sat in near silence, our cameras clicking away madly.

After about twenty minutes we had to leave as the sun was going down.

A memory we will never forget as we had

an African artist convert one image to a drawing

for our living room wall, so the memory lives on.
