Africa Highlights

We just arrived in Sydney, Australia - our trio now back to a duo (Melissa, we miss you already!!!).  With images of Africa fresh in our mind, here are a few of the fun highlights.

The buffalo and the egret are good pals out here in the wild.  When the buffalo walks, it kicks up bugs for the egret to eat.  Now, that's what friends are for!
