There are no other places (curious vervet),
that have African faces (smiling impala).
The animals you see here (Confident Southern Yellow Billed Hornbill)
are full of the joy (Square Lipped White Rhino)
of being free (African Elephant).
Much more free (Kudu)
than you and me (waterbuck).
Wild zebra send cheers to you from the still remaining free creatures of Africa~
You can look in two different directions at the same time!
And one head can be used to prod the other along.
Three heads are even better than two,
but more prone to go in different directions.
Eventually they all reach accord.
But four heads?
That’s just too confusing!
Cheers to you from the elegant, intelligent giraffes~
The Yellow Billed Stork dined on catfish tonite.
The poor catfish was given no say in the matter.
The stork’s eyes seemed bigger than his beak,
and the meal was almost more than he could swallow.
The Purple Herons,
were busy Hippo surfing.
But even they thought the stork caught more than he could swallow!
Cheers to you from Sunset Dam & Lake Panic Bird Hide Kruger National Park~
The Saddle Billed Stork was loafing in his pond today,
when the elephants decided he was in their way.
The ellies, snorted, bellowed and chased,
the stork leaped, jumped and flapped.
The ellies were dumbfounded by this unusual stork,
and decided it would be wise to yield the way.
Every stork must have his day!
On borrowed internet. Back to civilization in a few more days. Until then, cheers to you from the remote Oliphants River in Kruger National Park~
It is tulip festival at the Keukenhof gardens outside of Rotterdam Holland.
There are over 7 million tulips, spread over 77 acres of stunningly gorgeous gardens!
There are many other ethereal flowers too.
These are the most beautiful flower gardens I have ever seen,
and they provide a peaceful and lovely retreat.
We fly tomorrow to South Africa for two weeks self driving in the bush and will have no access to wifi for the next ten days, until we drive out of Kruger National Park.
Look forward to reconnecting with you in about ten days from South Africa!
Flying away, but sending hopes for health & cheers your way~ <3
Look at the Lord of the Irish Castle!
He ran free through the castle grounds
and this ain’t blarney!
Although the Castle is…..
and this is Blarney House,
both are in County Cork Ireland,
close to the charming coastal town of Cobh.
My husband loves the Irish pubs,
but I prefer the Irish foxes!
Cheers to you from County Cork~
(Still operating under very limited wifi access, so I apologize for not being able to follow and respond.)
in a North Atlantic way.
Such idyllic islands,
for whiling time away.
Only sad time had here,
is when you sail away!
The Azores are a Portuguese island chain in the mid-Atlantic blessed with heavy rainfall and a temperate climate.
They are pristine ecological wonders,
filled with exotic plants and beautiful, historic Portuguese architecture.
Cheers to you from the remarkable Azores~
