We made rezzies at Safari West a number of months ago with the idea that this would be our Anniversary outing. The lack of availability meant we had to wait til September.
On the way up we took a detour to Willi’s Wine Bar for lunch. It was well worth it.
We stayed in a great tent that was quite comfortable. Of note the animals are quite loud at night and the early morning. On the photography front, the fencing/cages were my nemesis. Therefore I didn’t shoot some of the creatures.
As far as we can tell there are only 3 hummers that visit our feeder. One in particular refuses to sit on the feeder perch, instead it’s in constant flight. I call her Nervous Nellie and Sandy calls her Germie, as she thinks it doesn’t like a “dirty” perch. I like Nellie because the hummer in flight looks much better in photos.
I saw them gathering in the middle of the street and watched the procession of the leaders in the duck community at large as they had their annual Gaggle of 7 conference. I heard they are demanding better protection from the Night Herons eating their young. I’ll wait for the announcement in the HOA newsletter.
Our old grill has been through the ringer so while the backorder was long we finally got a Napoleon. Out with the old and in with the new and the first thing Sandy requested was steak! I forgot to photograph it.
