Good Afternoon my sweet boy.

I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday my boy, I drove straight through from ADDO to home. I left ADDO just before 7am and got home at 4:45pm just about 9 and ¾ hours. I was extremely tired when I got home after driving 800 kilometres. I stopped a few times to fill with diesel and get something to eat, by the time I pulled up at the gates at home I had had enough.

I didn't stop at Wilderness, it was such a nice day I just kept driving

This morning I took your mum for breakfast then went and filled with diesel. I was quite happy with the fuel consumption of the Chevy

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Its yet another wet and miserable day today, I went on a game drive this morning for an hour or so then went and had breakfast in the restaurant. Then after breakfast I went out again, but apart from Kudu, Zebra and three elephants there wasn't much going on, so I decided to come back to the forest hut for a cup of coffee.

This evening I've booked a table at the restaurant as its too cold to cook myself, besides which tonight is my last night here. Later on I intend packing as much as I can into the Chevy so I can get an early start tomorrow morning. I am due to stop over night at Wilderness, which is about half way home, if I feel OK I might just carry on driving and get home a day early. However, if my back starts hurting I'll stop over in Wilderness.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet boy.

Its a cold rainy day today, I think it had been raining during the night. I went for a game drive this morning and amazingly I saw a big male lion near a water hole. I got him on Dash Cam as well as digital camera. Stunning.

I went and had breakfast, quite expensive but good, but by 2pm I was hungry again. I wasn't going into the restaurant as its very expensive so I went back to my cabin to perhaps cook something, then it started raining. I can't indoors as it would stink the place out, then the power went off!!!. When it FINNALY came back on I made myself some soup, warming and filling. I'm having a cup of tea at the moment and then I might go out for another game drive, but I doubt if there will be any game o look at because of the weather.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Good Morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Yesterday was very overcast as is today, it was quite old last night as it had rained. I was going to cook my own breakfast this morning, but it was too cold outside to cook, so I paid a visit to the restaurant instead and had breakfast there.

Same as yesterday I went for a game drive before breakfast and then after breakfast, nothing very exciting. A woman reported that there were hundreds of Cape Buffalo, I went to where she said they were, but they must have moved on.

I hope it gets warmer this afternoon and the elephant herds come out of the bush, I need to take more photographs.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet boy.

Today is very overcast and a bit chilly, so much so I have set the air conditioning to hot in the hut and the Chevy.

I went out this morning for a game drive, came back and had some breakfast in the restaurant, a bit expensive but I couldn’t be bothered cooking myself and then washing up. After breakfast I went out on another game drive for an hour or so, came back and bought an ice cream. Now I’m eating cheese straws', quite nice.

I have no idea what I am going to have for dinner this evening, the restaurant is too expensive and its too cold outside to cook, perhaps I'll have some soup.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet boy.

Today is extremely hot, I've got the air conditioning in my Chevy and accommodation going full blast.

I've been doing a game drive and photographed lots of elephants, zebra and a lone huge male kudu. There are some idiots who get out of their cars when they know full well they need to stay in the car.

I've just had some lunch and drinking a cup of tea. I feel full right now. Bad news, I have yet to wash up.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Good Morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Today is a bit cloudy but thankfully no wind, but a thunderstorm is expected this afternoon. At the moment it would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

At the moment I am running on my laptop battery as I have packed the charger into my Chevy, ready for my trip tomorrow.

I've almost finished packing, I just need a few more items to pack which I'll do today and tomorrow morning. My camera's and lens along with my laptop I'll pack just before I leave tomorrow morning. Hopefully I'll be leaving around 8am. I really need this break.

It appears I wont be able to post in your diary as there is no internet connection in ADDO. PLEASE don't think I have forgotten you my boy. I will never forget you

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet boy.

Same as yesterday its another beautiful day today my boy, but a bit on the chilly side. Thankfully there is no wind so there is no chill factor. It would make a perfect run and play day for you my boy.

Your mum and I looked after Mia last night while her mum was at work. Oh boy, she was so naughty one minute, laughing the next and naughty the next. That child is like Jekyll and Hyde. I was really getting annoyed with her.

I'm still sorting out the stuff I'm taking to ADDO this weekend, I've still got a lot more to do.

Well my boy, its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.
