Easy, Relaxing Day
Oct 29, 2011
|We decided to have one of our “Leisurely” wake ups this morning, so we were in no hurry to get started.
Marilyn & I sat outdoors on our porch, sipping our morning coffee and talking about the fact that our trip is winding down and how much we miss our family back home.
Colby and Lauren, our two little grandkids, are sure missed a lot.
Our little gang of six drove to the restaurant to have breakfast at 7:00AM.
After a breakfast of bacon, eggs, tomato, toast, juice and coffee, we were on our way.
It turned out not to be a great viewing day but we all enjoyed being out in the bush.
It was about noon when we arrived at Olifant’s Camp where we stayed for three nights earlier in the trip.
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch, shopped a bit and took the tar road back to Satara Camp.
Along the way today we saw a mother Ostrich we had seen five days ago. When we last saw her she had eight baby chicks and we were excited to see them again. They have grown a lot but sadly there were now only seven chicks.
Back at our camp we stopped to pick up a few groceries and then scattered, each couple to their own little abode, to begin packing up for the move to Lower Sabie Camp tomorrow.
We will spend the next two nights at Lower Sabie and then move to Pretoriuskop for another two nights and then we face the long flight back to the USA.
We do look forward to being back home and giving huge hugs to those grandkids as well as to Jen & Steve. We miss them a lot.
I guess I mentioned that already, but it is enough to mention again. LOL
The terrain around Lower Sabie is much more dense than here at Satara, where it is pretty wide open, so the game viewing may not be as good there as it has been here.
It is nearly impossible to tell you how good the animal viewing has been in this area. It has been far beyond our expectations.
Well dear readers, Marilyn is nearly finished with her packing so I had better get busy with mine.
Happy hour time will soon be here and then dinner and a good night of sleep, followed by another of those early get-ups, to depart this camp at 5:30 AM.
Life is Good!
