Dinner after a good day out
When we have been out on a game drive, especially a successful one, like seeing that magnificent leopard. It was hot, sweaty, but we got our photos and the feeling of being so close to one of those beautiful animals,makes you go away with a feeling of euphoria. At first we could not stop talking about it, almost as if there was so much adrenaline, that we had to get rid of it by talking....but after coming back to the camp, there was a quiet feeling, taking stock of what was seen.Firstly, a beautiful sunset, puts you in the mood for a sundowner drink...normally a cool, refreshing Gin and Tonic, while stretching our legs for a bit.
Sure, after the mosquitos found us, that quietness got broken by the sound of slapping and the spray bottle being used...horrible little critters, those.
As always, Dandy made sure that we had a good dinner and with enough wine to go with it, it always turns out to be the favourite time of the day. It's cool, with a little fire burning, the sounds of the Hippo's just behind us in the water (or out) the stars above...The African peace, like you don't find just anywhere.
