Trafalgar Travel made it easy for us to enter…

places such as the Palace of Versailles and avoid long queues.

I was slightly tempted to ride around…

the French Riviera while we were…

staying in Nice.

I have to thank the African continent,

again, this week for my entries.

On a day with a forecast temperature of 39 degrees

this ostrich family, in Kruger National Park,

was feeling the heat early in the day.

Our late afternoon flight over the Okavango Delta

provided some great photo opportunities.

I was about to forget P this week until I realised

my owl was a Pearl Spotted Owl.

I have to thank…
African animals again…

 although these Meerkat shots were taken in Melbourne Zoos.

Then the only N word I could find was…

Numbers.

I have to thank…

South Africa again…

 for my Kudu…

and Lion images.

This shot gave me goose bumps as the lioness was

only about 15 feet from me and she seemed to look

straight down my lens.

A night or two later and her cubs put on a show

for us on our last evening at

Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

These Impala at their watering hole was one

of our first 2013 sightings…

  in Kruger National Park…

 This Jackal was too nervous to come

too close to us in Botswana, 2014.

I may have stretched the G and H

connection this week.

However, all photos were taken in…


the Grand Hotel, La Pace, Naples.

The grandeur of the hotel is first seen as guests walk in the door.

  

This beautiful table sits in the middle of the foyer….


and after one admires the table

your eyes follow the line of the staircase

and eventually come to rest on this chandelier.

 

After climbing the staircase there is an

easy view into the chandelier.

It definitely deserves the title

Grand Hotel.

The Grand Hotel also featured in this week’s

Floral Friday  post

A few years ago, 2014, to be precise…

 we had a day trip to Victoria Falls.

On our home journey,

at the Zimbabwe and Botswana border crossing

I thought I had lost my passport between

the Zimbabwe and Botswana check points.

After a five to ten minute delay…I found my passport

in my pocket (oops!)…we were on our way again.

  

Hardly had we commenced than we sighted this

family of elephants trying to find a break in the traffic

so they could get to the river for a drink.


Not one person thanked me for delaying our trip

so that we were able to capture this sight.  

All they could think of was me and my lost passport.  

One bloke among five women!!!

MGW…was leading the charge.  

I had no hope 😀  😀  😀
