Special Critters and snow





 Baboons along the road as we travel to the shops in Champagne Valley

Chacma Baboons are prolific in the Champagne Valley; especially where there in human habitation. They are a great nuisance in the campsites and in many people's gardens. Humans have caused these animals to become too tame and actually enter you home or tent if there's something left open and causing great damage and an even greater mess. 


 On Thursday the cold front finally arrived. When the clouds lifted off the moutains they were covered with snow



 I snapped these birds overhead while volunteering at the Parkrun this mornning. I'm not sure what they are although Grant says they're vultures. They're too small for me to make a positive ID

Beautiful aloes with the dam in the background at the Parkrun venue this morning 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters here

Chimanimani

While traveling to our breakfast run last Saturday, Grant stopped so that I could photograph a farm name along the road. I was interested as I had grown up in the Eastern Highlands of Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe today) The Chimanimani moutains are a beautiful range of mountains quite close to where we lived. Years later a general manager of the mill where my dad worked, bought a house in Pietermaritzburg and named in Chimanimani. And this is why Grant stopped - was this the same person (or his descendants) who'd since sold their suburban home and settled in the Kwa Zulu Natal midlands?
