Hello Everyone, I had a quiet couple of months in California setting up our new base camp., and now I am off traveling again.

Here’s what I will be writing about for the next month: This is the blue whale: This is Pico showing...

2014: My Year of Gratitude

Posted by on Dec 31, 2013 in Namibia | Comments Off on 2014: My Year of Gratitude

I watched the following video about three weeks before this posted. I was so moved by the video, that I decided to dedicate my 2014 to GRATITUDE. I want to see how being grateful, as a daily mindful practice, changes the landscape of my life. If you read my blog in 2013 you know I had a heck of a year: my sister Alison’s accident, Biosphere Expeditions in the Azores, remodeling my house in Connecticut, Biosphere Expeditions in Africa...

Best Christmas Ever! (2013)

Posted by on Dec 26, 2013 in California, USA | 2 comments

This year we went completely non-commercial. No wrapping, no bows, not even presents! Just bare feet and beautiful weather. (Sure it feels a little weird to have my very first non-snowy Christmas ever, but you know what? I can already tell you that snow is way overrated!) You might have guessed that I’m not in Idaho, and you’d be correct.  Edward and I moved to the Los Angeles area last week. He’s got an exciting new job that’s top secret...

[I am back in the United States now, 09 December, but still have so many things to share with you that I will just keep rolling with the Africa posts…] This was still the first morning in the Park.These bull elephants were HUGE! Much bigger than the ones we have on Okambara… Ever seen a giraffe drink? It’s pretty awkward!   This was the following at, at a different water hole. Amazing! I could watch them for hours! (And...

Leopards in Etosha – I am a LUCKY LUCKY GAL!

Posted by on Dec 10, 2013 in Africa, Namibia | 1 comment

See the leopard? See the leopard? Well, I was extremely lucky to have caught sight of this magnificent predator (I believed it to be a female). I guess all these past months of “training” my eye to see things in the bush paid off…I am told that it’s extremely rare and lucky to see a leopard in Etosha. Even though I’d been up close and personal with the three we’d trapped on Okambara, ‘d never just spotted one in...

Lions at Etosha

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Namibia | Comments Off on Lions at Etosha

It’s been my dream for most of my life to go on a safari in Africa. Definitely one of those “bucket list” items. While I wasn’t on safari, last week I did rent a 4×4 with a rooftop camper and drive up to Etosha National Park. Seeing lions in the wild was one of those peak experiences I was seeking…and i got to see them my very first hour in the park! Extraordinary! Even more extraordinary, well, you’ll have...

A Visit to Cape Cross Cape Fur Seal Colony

Posted by on Nov 16, 2013 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on A Visit to Cape Cross Cape Fur Seal Colony

Thursday’s fun began with a visit to the Cape Fur Seal Colony, the largest breeding colony of fur seals in the world. During the breeding season in November and December, there may be up to 210 000 seals at Cape Cross. Lucky me, I got to visit at just the right time! OMG! The chaos! The cries! The wonder! Amazing stuff. As always, I am a lucky gal! The females fur seals breeding in synchrony once a year, fishing...
