Not much tatting on holiday

 I did knit some fingerless gloves while I was in Harare, but I didn't knit or tat while we were in the game park. We spent a week in Mana Pools, a World Heritage Site situated on the banks of the Zambezi River, which forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. I came face to face with this elephant, a bit too close for comfort, so I dashed inside and took this photo of him through the kitchen window.


  1. Harare! - that's where one branch of my family is from, several of them are there at this moment, revisiting old haunts; I wonder whether they were at the same Game Park as you were? - since I had an email about it just the other day.
    What fun - but aren't elephants a bit bigger and stronger than windows......?

  2. Oh, that's interesting, I didn't know you had Zimbabwean connections! The elephant was just going on his way, not very interested in me. He walked past our chalet and then past the neighbouring one, where the people were less wary of him and took photos out in the open.

  3. LOL for your elephant adventure :))))
