Flamingos & Kilimanjaro


Mark at the summit


A sea of pink flamingos- wish I had a better zoom.


My week has been hectic but really great.
My DH & I went on a whirlwind business trip,leaving on Wednesday4am to Kimberly & Joburg & back to Durbs in 3 days - believe me its a lot of hours in the car. We did however see the most amazing sight just outside Kimberly, hundreds of flamingos. They were so pink & unfortunately they were glinting n the sun too, so we stopped on the side of the road & took some pics not the best but it was just great to see them.
In Joburg we spent a very short time with Mark our son & I got some pics from his Kilimanjaro trip & got to see his offices & meet his boss etc - it was great to put faces to names & meet these really pleasant people. It really has put my mind at rest & I feel much better about him seeing him settle into his new cottage & work. Children do grow up - moms just never stop being moms !!
We got back to Durbs at 6.30pm & by the time everything was unpacked, caught up with all the kids news we were bushed. It was up early for tea duty at the fete this morning, a great team & fun. We survived. Needless to say we had a very much needed "nanna nap" as my kids call it and this evening we have just blobbed on the couch watching rugby & an old James Bond movie.

Those flamingos look wonderful. Mark looks so proud of himself there and so he should. Glad to hear that he's settling down well

Amazing photos! I also watched an old James Bond movie the other night...they seem so old-fashioned these days don't they?!

You must be so proud of Mark!

I also wish you had a better zoom...that must have been an amazing sight.

What an incredible sight...something you just don't imagine to see outside of a game reserve any more.
