For All the Babies


With any luck, I’ll be able to get this uploaded before we have to leave for the airport.

This is the “all creatures, great and small” post.

We found these babies in the middle of the road.  Our guide moved them to safety.

They made me think of the babies in MY life—Jamie, Bonnie, Kate, Jack and Ava, and I started to wonder whether THEIR children will be able to  view these magnificent creatures roaming free in their natural environment,  a hundred years from now. I fervently hope so!

Here are photos of just a few of the incredible animals we have seen over the past two weeks.

This post is for all you kids out there, regardless of age, and especially for my great nieces and nephews–my family’s newest generation.

Come to Africa!  Spend money!  Help the locals earn a living preserving this wonderful experience for the generations that follow us.

I am intensely curious, with a spirit of adventure that is tempered by my very strong aversion to anything with potential to cause pain. I love travel, photography, reading, gardening, yoga, music and propelling myself through space (biking, dancing, walking, dancing while walking). I've never considered a lack of proficiency in any of the previous activities to be a hindrance, counting on abundant enthusiasm to make up for my shortcomings.

  1. Oh, I love your “Come to Africa; spend money; help preserve” seductive enthusiasm.

    Your photos are lovely – there’s not a baby in the world who isn’t awwww-adorable.

    And those water buffalo look like wild buffalo ๐Ÿ™‚
