I've been working away on all sorts of things. No one is at school so I have no need to go over there. I had a very quiet Christmas by myself. I slept late, wrote letters, took care of some business and just generally enjoyed the peace. My Christmas dinner was pasta with chard from my garden.
The Trip to Uganda
These were one of just a few types of antelopes we saw. Please enlarge everything to see better.
After the game drive we had lunch and waited for the boat ride. We really didn't know what to expect, but certainly were not disappointed. The next photo is taken from the boat. Notice the few little lumps in the water and follow the next photos.
And guess what? Finally, the elephants. You can see two backsides and a baby elephant over by the water.
Then went into full trumpet!!
The rest of this group marched off as well. Apparently the trumpeter had quite a bit of clout!
That's the whole show, folks. On Wed., Sirenga drove us to a new place to spend the night. It was on a lake and was quite lively. People could get a room or they could pitch their own tents on the grounds. Most folks seemed to be going on or coming from game drives. Another reason Sirenga chose this spot was that it wasn't far from the Rwanda border. This allowed us to be a little lazy on Thursday morning and still get back home at an early hour.
Since our return I have been lying low! I was tired and still nursing my cold-for the third week. I'd had enough! I finally put myself on antibiotics and they have helped a lot. I'm glad I had some.
I plan not to strain myself until after New Year's Day. I'm quite happy staying at home and trying to catch up with answering e-mail. Miriam has been visiting her family in Wramagana. If she doesn't get back soon the laundry is going to overwhelm her!
Hope you enjoy these photos. On January 19 my daughter, Kate, and brother, Don will be visiting. On that date we will go on safari on the Serengeti plain in Tanzania. We have high hopes of seeing a lot of game there. Until later......
