Our magical trip and so much else....

It has been a while since I posted and so much has happened. We did the most magical trip ever. So many wonderful, unforgettable experiences that we will keep close in our memories forever. We have so many photo's to sort through but here are a few of some of our wonderful trip.
We have been manically busy since coming back , sorting out presents and Christmas things because we will be away again from tomorrow and wont be back until the 23rd. Its been full on sorting but all done now.
The elephant experience was so moving. What majestic animals they are.

       We will never forget our walk with lions as long as we live. The most unforgettable and magical experience ever.


                                We adored the gorgeous Toby and Lexi. ( Max Dog ) They made us feel like royalty at their house.

    I was writing my diary sat on the deck when this fabulous experience occurred.25 elephants and so close,

                                So rare and so gorgeous.

                                The beautiful rainbow over Victoria falls.

                                   He was magnificent.

                                Quite a scary little monkey. Chased me back inside lol.

                                            Sleeping beauty.
       While we were away and on the day before mum's birthday we had another arrival. Meet Amelia our newest great granddaughter,

    We knew our sweet GJ was with us on our trip and watching what we were doing. We felt him and mum close to us.

Take care everyone.
With love x

Carol I cannot even begin to imagine being that close to a real lion much less touching it. GJ was surely there secretly whispering delicate instructions as you rubbed his distant cousins. Once in a lifetime experiences each and every one.

Amelia is a beautiful baby congratulations to everyone.
Hugs madi and mom
