For my readers in those sub-temperatures in the northern and northeastern United States, I would like to officially invite you to come visit me in South Africa, where the weather has been in the thirties…Celcius (that’s in the 90s for those of you in Farenheit land).
But I know it’s not feasible to hop a 16 hour flight from Atlanta to Jo’burg, so I thought I’d share a shorter, cheaper option you might enjoy for a long weekend: Tucson.
Here are some warm photos of a trip we took in Saguaro National Park a few Januaries ago.
“Winter” in Tucson (if you can even call it “winter”) ranges from the 40s (Farenheit) to the 60s. In other words, not freezing. And sunshine. Lots and lots of sunshine.
Happy Friday, everyone. May you have a restful and re-energizing weekend.
P. S. In case you’re wondering about the dog in the photo, this is Baxter, our labrador retriever. When we moved throughout the United States, he traveled with us. He’s now in the love and care of Kurt’s parents, who call him the “grand-dog,” but we wish we could have him with us here in South Africa. But unless we can pull $5000 out of our hind quarters to get him here, and another $5000 to take him home when we return (for some reason, Kurt’s company doesn’t count dogs as children in their relocation expenses 🙁 ), we have to accept that we must be parted for a little while.
However, if anyone out there knows of a cargo/freight company who would be willing to let me take a cheaper ocean voyage with Baxter (not crated) from America to South Africa, please hook a sister up, because we miss our boy like crazy! <3
