Ailsa’s travel theme this week, had me looking through my photos once again, (when I should have been packing my cases). This one taken in Cairns, shows a young man who came every day to feed the pelicans on the beach. I remember that whilst I was watching, my hat blew off, and a very kind gentleman went down to retrieve it for me, before one of the pelicans took a fancy to it.
Lions are my favourite animals, and this very fine specimen was seen at the Rhino and Lion Park in Johannesburg.
Also to be viewed in Johannesburg game parks, there are zebras,
large and small rhinos.
and sleek, lazy cheetahs. I took this photo from the open Land Rover. The cheetah couldn’t even be bothered to jump up and grab my camera, I think they’re very well fed.
We had to go all the way to Egypt to get to ride a camel. Hubby was very brave on his own,
but I felt safer with our son up front. I never realised that camels were so high off the ground, until it stood up.
At ‘Bear World’ in Yellowstone National Park, I met this rather large teddy bear. He didn’t look very cuddly though.
These cute little guinea pigs in Peru, did look very cuddly, but they were unfortunately destined for the dining table. Of course, I didn’t taste one.
I’m all packed and ready to go to the airport. We fly to London this evening, so if I’m a bit scarce for the next few days, you’ll know why. I’ll pop in when I have the opportunity, but family comes first.
