Photos from South Africa

Kruger National Park. Kerry's daughter and
mother-in-law rode elephants there.

The Drakensberg mountain range forms the Eastern escarpment of South Africa,
which rises to 2000 - 3000 km in height - the central region of the country is a great plateau.
Oh, these Sundays do come around fast, don't they?
This week and next week I am featuring photos shared by Kerry O'Connor, most of which were taken in the vicinity of the town of Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, where she lives. Ladysmith is a town in the so-called Battlefields area of Kwa-Zulu Natal, as it was the site of a famous siege siege during the Anglo-Boer War (1899 - 1900). If you are interested in finding out more about the Kwa Cheetah Breeding Program pictured above, click here. The photo of the elephant was taken a bit further north. The photographer is Kerry's husband, H. J. Clark.
Be sure to visit Poets United tomorrow to see what Sherry Blue Sky has planned to share. Will it be a featured poet? A featured blog? Or a featured poem?
Glad to see there is always a great turn-out for Midweek Motif. We hope to see you this coming week for another challenging prompt by Susan Chast! (And, ha, perhaps many of you have noticed that if you look at one week's prompt Susan gives a clue about the following week's prompt as well, so you can get a head start.)
And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
I issue an invitation here to those of you who participate in Poetry Pantry. If YOU have special photos that you would like me to feature some week, let me know what kind of photos you have. There are participants here from many different cities, many different countries. I think it is great fun to see different areas featured. I am especially interested in scenic views of your area or an area you have visited. Send inquiries first to firstname.lastname@example.org letting me know what you have. I am interested in city or country views - in your home area or places you have traveled.
Come back a few times on Sunday and Monday to see what's new. Visit some strangers, and they will become new friends! Making new friends and reading new poetry, what more could one want?
If you are on Facebook, look for us there as well. Join our site. It is one more way to stay in touch!
And now...here is the procedure, for those who are new here: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 12:00 p.m. (CDT), but you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.
