Last week the men in our company were beside themselves with excitement. After three LONG months since the new contract was signed, the first of the new earthmoving machines arrived on site: three shiny new drill rigs.
Grant, Johan and Steve spent the entire lunch hour
discussing the merits of these new machines and the whole of Saturday
afternoon they assisted the South African transport team to offload
them from the low-beds!
Grant collected my camera and returned to the workshop to photograph these welcome beauties. I must say I was a little disappointed when I downloaded the photos for him and saw that they weren't yellow. Caterpillar machinery (which I'm used to) is yellow and these machines were Sandvik which is red. Oh well, it was obviously only I who was "behind the times"!
One thing I did notice about the machines was the beautiful blue African sky behind them; I decided this image would make a lovely photo for this week's meme, Skywatch Friday.
I'm packing to leave site tomorrow at 4am. As you can imagine the cats are milling around me, climbing inside the luggage and sniffing at things as I pack!
I hope you've all had a wonderful week.
