Out of the Jurisdiction: A Hiding Place

Willa likes to play in enclosed places.  Her favorite spot is under a spreading bush, 
next to an aloe plant.  Late afternoon in Sun Valley is truly the golden hour.

Out of the Jurisdiction: Willa and her Sleeping Bag

Back in Joburg.  Willa likes to play in a fluffy sleeping bag.  She is wearing a sweater bought
in Peru in March.  It arrived in Joburg not a minute too soon.  She is bursting out of it.

Out of the Jurisdiction: Walk to the Ocean

The walk to the Indian Ocean was different from other beach access walks I have taken.  The land
just beyond the beaches is densely forested, so the walk is like hiking through a wooded tunnel.


Along the way I saw a few brightly colored butterflies.
With limited wifi, I have not been able to identify them yet.

Out of the Jurisdiction: Dolphins and Things

Confession time.  I wasn't really excited about bouncing around in a little Zodiac, 
so I gave Susie and Wessel my new underwater camera.  They did great.

Out of the Jurisdiction: Susie and Willa at the Beach

After a short worried period when she needed her mama's protection,
Willa got down and toddled around the sand and then into the ocean.

Out of the Jurisdiction: On the Indian Ocean

We took a five day trip to the eastern coast of South Africa, in KwaZulu Natal.  
For three days we were at a nice resort with access to beaches on the Indian Ocean.

No one as far as you can see to the left, no one as far as you can see to the right.
The only signs of humanity are tire tracks of the vehicles taking guests
to the boats where they will watch whales and dolphins
 and snorkel and scuba dive.
