No …… I wasn’t ……

…….. abducted by Aliens!
Hubby and I disappeared into the Pilanesberg National Park for a week. What bliss! Not too many people and few cars. Total peace, quiet and harmony. If we were any more relaxed, we would have been in reverse LOL!

These are just a few of the photos I took.

Red Hartebeest

Giraffe licking a salt slab

White Rhino

The rain clouds were gathering …………………………..
but very little action! 5 and a half drops of rain and then the sky cleared.
Pity, because there is nothing as special or exciting as
a full blown storm in the middle of the bush.

This was taken just as we were leaving a water hole.

Ah well, it’s over for another year. There is nothing like the African Bush to rejuvenate mind, body and soul.
Take care, be kind to yourself and enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thank you for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments.

Oh my goodness. What gorgeousity you have there, missus! A white rhino that close to you... no lions, true. But the giraffe and that salt slab? Perfect.

Thank you so much for sharing these bits of your vacation. I really hope to see it for myself up close and personal one day.
