For Terry - Feet in the Indian Ocean

I've been meaning to post this photo for my friend Terry in Florida. She and her husband Wes have this tradition of photographing their feet when they travel to various exotic locations. No, I don't think there is a foot fetish involved! So when we were at Sodwana Bay in South Africa which is on the Indian Ocean - I had to get a photo of our feet in the Indian Ocean.

Greg has been working on his photos and boy....they are fabulous. I am anxiously awaiting for him to show them to me. It is like an unveiling of art! I come into his office and he is working on them but that is the only glimpse I get of them. Yes, I am close to the artist but he won't even unveil them to me until the time is just right! You'd think I would get preferential treatment but sadly that is not the case!!!!

I've been wanting to knit a lot but haven't had the energy after work. I would get home and by 7:30 I was ready to go to bed. I still have not gotten back to this time zone. I was fully awake at 4am. I went in the other bedroom and read-I get riled up looking at knitting books. Once that happens I cannot sleep. I could look at knititng books/magazines and catologs over and over.

Once Greg got up we headed over to Starbucks for our morning jolt. Now we are home, perusing the internet (me, my blog and Greg looking at new flat screen TV's). I didn't tell him that it is my birthday this coming week, not his! :0) He says "I'm just looking". I know what looking leads to!

I'll go out and look for one more Africa photo to post. I still can't believe I was there. It was one of the most memorable two weeks of my life. I still get tongue tied when people ask about the trip. It is hard for me to encompass my experience in a few sentences. Maybe in the future I'll be able to verbalize it better.

This picture was taken on one of the first nights in Africa and we were heading back to the lodge. I feel like it captures the grace of the giraffe even though this is a still photo. Enjoy.

My nephew Matt is coming into town tonight. I have not seen Matt for something like 5 years...when he graduated from high school. He has since graduated from Tulane University and is now in law school. I can't wait to see him. It has been way too long since I have seen him. Greg has never had the opportunity to meet him! We are having a family dinner tomorrow night at Jenn's house (his sister). I sure wish his parents, Val and Gerry, would be there too. We miss you guys! Move back to Seattle please!

Off to do some knitting(what a luxury!)

Seeing those feet makes me feel like I'm there with you! I should have reminded you of our latest kick: posing ourselves as roadkill. But on safari, that could have gotten you a lunch date with the locals! Hey, glad you survived and had a great time. Welcome home! Terry
