Dreams of Africa

Out on a Limb

Relaxing, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

“You have to understand – there is a romance to Africa. You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the hand of God. You watch the slow lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.”

― Jodi Picoult, Leaving Time

Backroads America: Chena Lakes

A Day at the Lake

Chena Lake is a man-made lake created in the 1970s when gravel was removed for the massive Chena River flood control dam/dike. The earthen filled dam is 7.1 miles long.

Chena Lake Recreation Area is a 2000 acre park with picnicking, camping boating, and swimming. My sister and her family love to kayak. I love to watch. 😎😎😎

On the Road Again: Southern California

I am spending the afternoon on my sister’s patio enjoying the lovely weather and the companionship of Tortuga, a desert tortoise who wandered into their yard 20 years ago and never left. He like rose petals.

Sailing the Nile

Felucca on the Nile near Aswan, Egypt

If you ever venture to Egypt, be sure to hire a felucca for a sail on the Nile. The river is beautiful. This was near Aswan.
