On Friday, I wrote that I would share some photos of where we are staying in Africa.
And since we had a rainy weekend... and I didn't spend any time outside, except
for chore times,
I don't really have a weekend farm story to share.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Hurricane Florence stays at sea and does
not come inland.
Besides causing havoc to those in her path,
she may have an affect on our departure from Washington DC on Saturday.
Fingers crossed for all!
If we do make it off the ground, we will be arriving in Zambia on Sunday morning.
We will be staying in a rather remote part of Africa.
Our safaris will be in areas designated as national parks
where the animals are protected from poachers.
Our first camp will be here for several nights...
The inside looks like this...
From there we travel to a bush camp which is quite a bit more rustic....
After four nights in the bush,
we return to Camp number 1( and running water) for a couple more nights.
We then fly on a small plane across the country to this camp.
There are more photos to see on their website.
In the mean time, this week will be filled with trips to the feed store to stock up,
mowing the farm,
and getting everything in order for our friends and family who will be taking over for us.
Indoor activities have filled my free time during this rainy time.
I spent a good part of yesterday baking and decorating these cookies
for a friend's granddaughter's second birthday.
She's having a Minnie Mouse party.
I've been working on this piece of embroidery...
and knitting this autumn wrap...
As for the animals... they are all staying under cover, out of the rain.
Summer's heat has left us.
And although the thermometer will eventually rise again...
the dog days of summer are over....
and Autumn is peeking around the corner.
