Farewell

The end of the safari is here and we all have spent the week trying to put that thought out of our minds. Momo, Opus, Roscoe, Karl, Ruis, and myself have enjoyed spending most of the summer together and were not looking forward to having to go back to our homes. We spent the last few days trying to capture each minute that we had left and make the most of it. Below are some candid photos taken during our last few days in Africa . . .


. . . watching Roscoe master the art of zebra riding . . .


. . . one more ride in the jeep . . .


. . . getting up close to another of nature's beautiful creatures of Africa . . .


. . . making fast friends with a hungry baby . . .


. . . stealing a quiet moment with one of my best friends and a few new ones . . .


. . . our group shot before we boarded the MFV to head back home . . .


. . . as the sun set on magnificent Africa we settled down for our journey that would take us home.

. . .bidding our final farwell to Africa I took a moment to quote from a favorite movie on mine, "I'll be back!"

For more exciting candid shots please go over to Ruis & Karl's and Opus & Roscoe's blog.
