African lines this week.

It was truly fascinating to see these giants

at such a close distance.

Their skin, while smooth, is like…

…an ancient…

…eroded landscape.

Botswana zebras posing for my camera.

A zebra crossing in Kruger National Park.

Thirsty impalas.

 

Our first images of African wild life.

Late afternoon and like all animals

they were out for some fun.

The following year we were locked out.

Probably a good idea in hindsight because the horn

would go right through before they thought of stopping.

African Harrier Hawk

conducting its pre-flight check.

Airborne and still looking good.

It is only 103 days before…

…we are unwrapping Christmas gifts,

some of which could be books.

These days I tend to listen to, or read, digital books

in preference to paper books.

However every now and again…

…I like to turn my images into a paper version

for the coffee table.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Spontaneous

~~~~~

spontaneous

performed or occurring as a result of a sudden impulse
or inclination and without premeditation or external stimulus.

About eight years ago MGW

came home from work one day…

…and asked would I like to go on an African Safari.

The question was spontaneous to me,

however she had been talking to

a work colleague who had decided to go.

 

So began planning for our 2013 African Safari.

As we were boarding our plane to return to Australia

we received a 25% discount voucher

for our next flight with South African Airways.

Without giving it much thought my comment was

‘…we should make use of this and return….’

So began planning our second African Safari.

A wonderful Safari through Botswana.

Now we are finalising plans for our third

and probably final African Safari next year.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Welcome

~~~~~

welcome

an instance or manner of greeting someone.

This dance troupe…

…could have been welcoming us to…

…South Africa and…

…Sausage Tree Safari Camp.

They were, in fact, bidding us farewell.

And so vigorous was their dancing that..

…one of the male dancers found

a weak spot in the decking.  🙂
