Lovely sightings on your morning drive Porridge! Those young Buffalo are so cute! :clap: :clap:

Love the drinking Giraffe! :dance: :dance:

Crocs still at the Hippo carcass! It will take ages for them to eat all that meat. :shock:

Saturday morning dawned and I found myself quite excited as it would be the first time I wore my uniform officially. After a brekkie of home made rusks and coffee, I made my way to the conference centre for the AGM. After going through the various agenda items where as you all know, our very own Dominee Louis was elected as Chairman of the NEC and Waterberg was inducted as an official region, I ambled back to my chalet and finally got a pic of me in uniform which D and a few others have been pestering me for. (Note to self: Shirt material quite unforgiving on nipples. Get Band-aids for future)

Image

A chilled afternoon followed, after which I got the jacket and tie on and went back for the gala dinner. Jenni Lane looked resplendent in her gold coiture, and a really fun evening was had by all. The food was out if this world, the company was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Here's a pic of the menu which I hope you can make out.

Image

And the sponsor banner for the event. Without these people it would not have been as terrific of an event as it was.

I drove home on Sunday morning having had a nice little "getaway", and looking forward to Golden Gate next year :)
