The big band's done.  I think it looks pretty good for a first attempt.

Plain Old Traffic Jam

The plains are awesome, as are the water holes.  But sometimes you have to endure a traffic jam to see them.


When we moved, my Uruguayo antique balance was damaged.  Enter Clements the moving insurance company.  They gave us replacement cost, and here is the replacement - a pretty and in need of care balance from France.  I love the verdigrised pan.  Time to start restoration.

So Tired Of Browns

The major swathes of brown are wearing on me again.  Looks like it's time to change the area I'm working on.  I did get another branch started on the left.

Minor Groaning

I thought I'd be done with this fourth band by now.  On the other hand, there's a small peek of band five stitched.

The Zebras Sweeping Down The Plain

It actually wasn't very windy on this plain, but it sure was dry and animal-full.  These landscapes (especially the third photo, which reminds me of the Scottish seaside) give an idea of the wide expanses of the park.

Night Visitors

These are all photos taken between the main lodge and our bungalow in the early evening.  You could pretty much go on safari around the pool.
