Egyptian Geese: Part 1:3

In March I took my boyfriends daughters to one of our local picnic spots for the morning.

Sonstraal dam is one of our favorite places to go and it is free. You can walk around the pond and get in some exercise too. During the week it is not that busy. Mostly moms with young children and strolers walking around the pond and feeding the ducks.

In the past there was a wide range of ducks and geese to be found. I have noticed that the number of Egyptian Geese have increased over the past 2 years and some of the others has either moved away due to the drought we had or have died.

I will be going back there again in the next 2 months. I just hope I see more of the other duck species again.

Here is a few of my photos of the Egyptian Geese. Will post more in my next post.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Big birds, big eggs and childhood memories…..

Ostriches are very big birds that can’t fly…. But oh my word they can run very fast and they lay very big eggs….

I used to love to listen to the stories my mother told me about her childhood vacations on the Ostrich farm were her grandparents stayed. She told me how she and her nephew use to go play in the Ostrich penns. They were not aware that it was breeding season and got to close to the eggs. Mom told us that she never knew she can run that fast or jump over the fence….

When I was about 10 years old my parents took us to Oudtshoorn known for all it’s Ostrich farms. My mom also showed us were she spent her school holidays. I remembered that holiday as if it was yesterday. Sitting on the back of that big bird and feeding it. I found it very interesting that Ostriches eats stones well everything they can swallow to be honest. They really like shiny things too.

Ostrich eggs are very big and srong. One can stand on it and it won’t break. I would never believed it but I saw it with my own two eyes. One Ostrich egg equals 24 eggs and it is a taste to get use to. I personally love it especially when you make omelettes of it.

While visiting the Westcoast National Park last year for the first time I had the opportunity to take some awesome photo’s of the Ostriches in a field of yellow flowers.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog.

“Take vacations, go as many places as you can, you can always make money, you can’t always make memories.”

There is only one problem with this quote… To go to places one needs money and if you live in South Africa you need lots of it.

Nowadays there is not many places that you can go to for free. Even if there are no entry fees you still need fuel in your car and that costs more than a loaf of bread these days…

I use to love to travel and take the boys out on day trips during school holidays. Now they are big and do their own thing….

Just this morning I told my dad that I would love to visit Cape Point again. Haven’t been there in years…. When we were children we used to go there when we had visitors from other provinces….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Playing hide and seek…

Tortoises are more visible these days in The Westcoast National Park. Maybe it is just because they have grown and are bigger so one sees them better….

I was very lucky this time around they did not all head for the bushes when I got out to take some photo’s of the.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a Blessed day.
