A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Elephants, Elephants, Elephants

The Tau Game Reserve in the Madikwe National Park on the Bostwana border of South Africa is simply the most awesome park filled with lots of wildlife and over 1100 elephants (my favorite). We were all very thankful of the "show" the beasts displayed to us on a hot summer day on the range!  Right outside our lodge is one of the water sources for many animals and we were delighted with the antics of two juvenile males trying to show their dominance to each other. (Whoever wins this game in the next few years will become a dominant male of a herd, or get his top pick of the available mating females). 

Once on the the Safari we got to see more elephants, giraffes, water buffaloes, spotted hyenas, rhinoceroses, wild boars, and birds including owls!  A lot to see on the first leg. Our next safari is at 5:30am!
