While they were here we got to see Ghana through their eyes, going places we had wanted to see but waited so we could go together. We went to Mole National Park and saw elephants, baboons, wart hogs, deer, monkeys, water buffalo, beautiful birds, crocodiles and more. An elephant came up to our motel and ate the landscaping. A baboon came up to the restaurant and took food off a little girls plate. These are wild animals but we were very close to them. They are not caged or fenced. We went on a safari on the top of a jeep and got to see the animals in their own habitat.
|We saw a lot of deer at Mole Park.|
|We saw beautiful birds but it is a little hard to see them in a photo.|
|Can you see the crocodile?|
|This is the water buffalo herd that came chasing us in our jeep. The passengers wanted to stop to take pictures.|
The driver stepped on the gas and got us out of there because even though these guys are big they were coming fast!
|I see a monkey looking at me|
|A herd of elephants crossed the road in front of our truck. It was fun to see the bike rider on the|
other side of them. He got a good first hand look at the elephants.
|This elephant came right up to the motel and ate the landscaping. |
|We walked to the watering hole where these elephants were keeping cool.|
Our canoe trip
|When we were getting out of our canoe there were women collecting water from the river. |
This picture is a good illustration of why we are drilling wells in Africa.
|Heidi and Travis were invited to dance with them and they were good sports.|
Thank you Travis and Heidi for your visit. We look forward to seeing you in August.
