WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - Sunrise at Montfort Cottage

This is the sunrise I woke up to over Lake Malawi.  We took Daniel to his first diving lesson and dive yesterday and so today we take him to his second.  Just before we go I will show you a bird I saw on the beach and then show you reflections in the bonnet pf the car  We met Monkeys Baboons along the way, huge trees and rocks. 





This is a Pied Kingfisher.

Next Tuesday/Wednesday on Wild Bird Wednesday I will be showing you many more of these birds.  
I was utterly thrilled to see them and I think you will be also.


For breakfast we had this lovely papaya which Annika is holding.


As you can see these shots are taken through the windscreen and are not great reflection shots however I wanted you to see the road and large trees and rocks.  There are monkeys and baboons all around this area and also on top of the big rocks.





When we arrived at the scuba centre, Daniel went off again, and Judith and I relaxed looking out over Lake Malawi.  The beach was deserted, ever the dog was not there.


Like yesterday Judith, Annika and myself went off to have refreshments at a different restaurant and  on returning we were entertained by this little band of children.  Below is a short clip of their efforts.


Tomorrow I will show you the birds that were around the scuba centre on this beach.
