Please, Twaffle, don't tease. I want to hear about you and Queen Wilhelmina!

Jan, it is really a very boring story which I try to make much more of than I should (just to be interesting, you know!) and it shows me to have been a very silly child doing dangerous things. But she was very nice, all the same. Now I don't do anything remotely dangerous or exciting so I live in my memory. :o

Twaffle, we all do silly things, but being stopped by royalty does make it rather unusual.

Because I was scanning some old cars for Game Warden I thought I'd be self indulgent and include one of our favourite places where we used to picnic on the way to friends near Mt Kenya. By the end of the picnic we always had the company of some local village children.

Austin 1100? Is that you looking at the camera? I love these old shots Twaffle, please keep them coming. I seriously think you should write a book about growing up in Kenya, including some of these images.

Yes that's me. I used to love those picnics. We would go driving every Sunday with a picnic but in the holidays we would visit our friends who farmed on the slopes of Mt Kenya. They had a magical place on the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro where we would see colobus monkeys and hear the leopards cough at night. We would leave in the dark and have a cooked breakfast at the spot in the photo. Now I always love getting up before dawn, it gives me a holiday feeling even though it is usually because it is winter and I have to get the children to school.

Thank you. I'll have a go at making something interesting. I have some ideas so may post later today if time.

 

BTW, if I were to write a memoir, I would have to get Tony to ghost write it and it would have to be done somewhere in Zimbabwe, obviously! :lol:

I'm afraid that no inebriated smiley wants to leave the weekend party at Nyama's Smiley Orphanage. :lol:

 

All I can offer you is this for orientation...

I love seeing photos of 'white' polar bears with snow and ice around them. Many photos you see these days have those poor bears in the dirty brown landscape around Churchill. Love the way the bear is looking at you.

 

Look forward to seeing more of your Arctic photos.

It was an amazing experience to be lucky enough to witness

this Zebra mum give birth to this foal!

A first for me and our Guide of 13 years, he didn't believe me when I told him that the lying down posture

looked very unusual and that I thought she was in labour! So when she got up this was what I captured.
