One-Word-Sunday-Rest

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

rest

cease work or movement in order to relax,
sleep, or recover strength.
~~~~~


Whether domestic…

…or fighting for survival in the African wilds…

…or living a life of ease in captivity,

all animals seem to learn the task

of resting early on, in life.

A back road near Geelong

with a beautiful view.

***

Not a Botswana back road,

however with wandering livestock,

it could be a back road

We travelled over this road for several hours

before reaching the salt lake.

 

Greater Kruger National Park…

…provided a variety of tracks/roads

and many wandering wildlife.

 

This Kruger National Park road

may pass for a back road,

but it isn’t and that maybe that is

why the hyenas used it.
