St Lucia – Near the Indian Ocean

Can you see the crocodiles?

Can you see the crocodiles?

We spend the next three days in St. Lucia, a small resort community on the beach and near three game reserves.  We went to a park and watched the hippopotamus graze and the crocodile open their mouths.  We went shopping (an activity that would be repeated several times throughout our trip).  After a lateGiraffe & Zebra lunch we got to go to the beach and wade in the Indian Ocean where Erika put on quite a show.

The next day we made it into Hluhluwe and Maphelana Game Reserves.  It was a fun day of watching for any possible animals, especially the big five (lion, cheetah, elephant, Jared & Erika on Safari rhinoceros and buffalo (not to be confused with the bison we have in the states).  We saw both the White (or Wide) and Black Rhinoceros, Elephant, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Zebra, Monkeys, Baboons, Kudu, Nyala, Impala, and a Warthog family.  I am sure we are leaving something out.  It was a long day of trying to see who could find the best animals first.  I think Erika won.

    It was so exciting to have Erika and Jared visit and share some wonderful moments with us. Africa is an amazing place the Land, the People, and the Gospel. We are truly blessed.
