Wild Adventure Chapter 5 After the Storm

After experiencing a fairly wild and stormy night with thunder and lightening interrupting their dreams and the caravan rocking like a row-boat on a rough sea the Grum-Peighs woke up and went out to assess the damage. Neither they nor the Frend-Leighs needed any major repairs. The rain had gone and the weather was calm so after a slightly later than usual start they set off on their morning drive.

First up was a beautiful Martial Eagle

Their breakfast stop was at Melkvlei.  Lord Grum-Peigh loves to cook eggs and bacon on his special camping stove. Lady G-P makes sure he has the right pans and ingredients and is ready to follow his demanding instructions.  The results are always delicious.

The animals were scarce as is often the case after a storm.  They seem to move deeper into the bush and find water in puddles rather than trekking to the waterholes.  So all they saw was the following.

This meerkat found a wonderful platform right outside the camp – a good vantage point to spot potential danger.
