Anyway, a few weeks later off on another Marloth trip!

It was only going to be leachy, then he hurt his leg so asked me for help, then Dwarf wheedled his way in on the trip too! 0*\

Just past Malelane it looked like the locals were causing unrest, and we thought about turning around... O-/

But it was just a sugar cane fire! :-0

Dwarf had put a lot of work into his sprinkler system, and it was only spraying out of one place! ^Q^ ^Q^ ^Q^

(Notice there is a new baby tree too! :-0 )

Some evening visitors! X#X

RP being brave! ^Q^ ^Q^

q4.jpg

Kudu: "Oh the smell! 0: "

Now Dwarf has an obsession with following commercial flights in the sky, ever since he acquired an app for that. It is very stupid, but that night the space station also came over, so great excitement... :O^

I think we saw it? :no:

Anyway, you will never guess what this is! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:


q5.jpg

We made chicken stirfry, despite the howls of rage from leachy who wanted the normal Friday chicken. It took a lot of manual labour slicing vegetables, but was astoundingly good! :yes:

leachy: "This food is Palatable." (A great compliment! O/\ )

leachy had again planned to mark papers that weekend, but again announced that it was not necessary after all. (It is becoming a bit of a 'cry wolf' story.) Dwarf was going to do a lot of pipelaying, which sounded like work to me, so I borrowed The Dong ll and went in at Croc for the morning! (I had to fill up with diesel at some nefarious spot in Komatipoort where it costs 10c less per litre as my condition. 0- )

leachy remained behind to supervise Dwarf, with disastrous consequences I would find out later... O-/


It was a historic day, the first time Saturday had been added to the SANParks free entry weekend! :shock:

The plan was to go to the dam again for a few hours and then home. (Dwarf had not allowed me to bring any tea, obviously.)



First aminal! [O]

q7.jpg


Then I saw some cars parked across the river so went there first (S129)


This was there... :shock:



q8.jpg




A gentleman came by in a Natal vehicle and I showed them what I was looking at. He laconically said that he didn't think the impala had gotten very far, and I laughed and laughed! =O: =O: =O: =O:


The cars were looking at this giant elephant, Nhlowa, I think aat said! ^Q^

The sprinkler system does not look very professional ;-)

Yes, it's Nhlowa :yes:

It's a kudu not a lion :O^ O**

Everything to avoid physical exercise even driving alone all the way to Kruger lol ;-)
