Hello and greetings.... yes we are still home in Aus, and have been very busy in the 8 months we have been home. Aside from the time spent getting our bathroom renovated and floors re-tiled, we have had the Garden Gallery open every weekend since December. We have now added more seating areas, included a fire-pit area and generally just expanded slightly. You can check it out here under 'African Garden Gallery' page.
For those of you who remember our Kenyan 'daughters', Cate was married in December 2014 and I can now announce that Cate, (the elder of the sisters) has given birth to a baby girl, "Debra" around the 25th of April.
Suzy is not married yet but she is working in a food center, which is where Cate was working up til now.
Joseph has been in touch and sent photos of our Boran cattle which we still have there. The good news is that they all look in very good condition and the first of our calves has been born on the 12th of April.
It is also very good to see that the grass in the area, particularly in our boran 'paddock' is the longest we have EVER seen it, so all those challenging lessons about keeping the sheep and goats away in another area, so the grass has a chance to grow and re-seed, is now paying off, and the family are seeing the results with the condition of the cattle.
It is really sad for us not to be going to Africa this year, as we miss it greatly and would love to see things for ourselves, but.... we are heading off (in The 'Office' ~our excellent camper) to explore some of Australia's highlights for a while, as the 3 Musketeers (me, Bob and Gail) head down the Tamini and Gibb roads to Kimberleys and Northern Territory, Alice Springs, Uluru and Cooper Pedy for the first time.Looking forward to it.
So, i will end here, and report on our Aussie Tour as it happens!! Bye for now everyone.
