Back to what we got up to over our Women's Day Long weekend...2 of our friends and us decided that a weekend bush getaway would be the perfect way to spend our weekend.

We will definitely be making it a regular weekend hot spot for us over the next few years.

The one younger Elephant entertained us by lifting a big branch and moving it out of his way. Like I said. These animals are amazing!

After our wonderful Game Drive we started with the fire, once again and dinner. That night it got chilly quickly and the wind picked up again so we moved the

And on that note I say... "Cheers to the almost freaking weekend! I'll drink to that"
Tonight we have to pack because tomorrow we will be on a flight to Mossel Bay to spend some quality time with me dad and his lovey. And I will also see my bestie, Aimee and her husband, Sev! Cannot wait!
Till next week!
