A few more photos from our trip…

Does sunset not supply the most beautiful colours for photography…

The Kalahari Tented camp we stayed in… no fences so any animal can get up close… had the brown hyena calling outside the tent, I looked for the witches but saw none…


These wildebeest past within touching distance, but look at the colour after sun set…


The Giraffe are always entertaining as the bend to drink…


This was the view we had of the nearby water hole… no need to drive around, the game comes to visit you…


and one more of the entertainer… the “Rooi-muishond” Literal translation “Red Mouse Dog” but actually known as the “Slender Mongoose”


Till we meet again, go well… will do my best to get on the air as and when I can…

It’s Official – I am to design and build a 9 hole golf course.

The emails have flowed between the owner and myself, I’ve visited the site a few times and now the contract has been awarded me. So for the next six months I will be “on and off” the blogging scene.

Unfortunately the internet is not of the best where we are going, but when I can I’ll look in at your blogs, doubtful if I will get a chance to blog myself, but that’s life.

This has been a life long dream, to design and build a golf course from scratch, has long been on my “bucket list”, in fact for more years than I can remember.

Here’s a few photos from our recent trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park…… I have 100’s to share and now I don’t have the time…..






“I will be back” as Arni said…. just give me the time to build a Golf Course…

More of Kalahari trip last year…

Dianne Gray post today, or maybe yesterday was titled You can’t hide your lion eyes… she admits to an obsession with eyes.. and that had me thinking of a few I captured on our last trip to the Kalahari Gemsbok Park… here is a link to her post… https://diannegray.wordpress.com/2015/06/22/you-cant-hide-your-lion-eyes/

Pop over and have a look… here’s a few eyes for her….

Now that’s a beady eye…

Have you heard the news?

As work just gets more and more, of which we do no complain, social media gets less and less.

Book? you ask… no progress, just no time…

Blogs? ,,, the same… although I do pop in and look at yours, I just don’t always have the time to comment….

BUT next month we are taking time off to go to the Kalahari Gemsbok Park… so look forward to photos from there, specially those I will be taking with the new camera… can’t wait… like a kid waiting for Christmas… Remember these… well expect many many more….

I will be posting every now and then before we go just to keep the interest up… have to find time for blogging though…

Kgalagardi Transfrontier Park… Where I want to be…

Oh when I die,

my soul to the sky,

here I want to stay,

and continuously play.

This is to me the best place on the earth, Hot? Oh yes in January it can get as high as 45 C (113 F). Cold? Oh yes July can go as low as –6 C (20 F). But it still remains the best place on earth. Sand and dunes, arid and dry, rain? What’s that? It does rain here occasionally and then all the animals come out to play…

But apart from the animals, the raptors, the big Cats, the little cats, the squirrels and small birds, the scenery is just something else… look at these…
