A weekend away

Posted By on Apr 2, 2013 | 0 comments

This past weekend was phenomenal. Besides the fact that we had a 4 day weekend which in itself is awesome, we also went away to the bush for some R&R! I really didn’t want to come home yesterday but such is life!

On Thursday evening some of Gary’s family arrived at our house as they were going to stay over considering we were leaving at “sparrow fart” on Friday morning. As we were packing the trailer on Thursday evening, I spotted this little guy who obviously wanted to come with us…

As we left super early, we arrived at the front gates to the game farm around 7am and waited for the game viewing vehicle to fetch us (no private cars are allowed in the reserve). We had a gorgeous breakfast spread when we got to the site, followed by a lazy afternoon. (I had the best afternoon nap on Friday!)

The rest of the weekend was just as lazy with early morning game drives followed by a late breakfast, chilled afternoons chatting in the lounge, then late afternoon game drives followed by dinner and stargazing. This long weekend couldn’t have been better timed!

I thought I’d share a few of my favourites from the weekend…

I hope you all had a great long weekend and that you’re feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the week!
