It has been a while since I last visited the Sandton Field and Study Centre.
And it was certainly "buzzing".
Aside from the myriad of people who were out on a mid-Autumn afternoon,
the benches on the banks of the river caught my attention.
As did this "ruin"...
I am uncertain of its origins, but I will try to discover what it used to be.
Watch this space.
As I took this shot of the Jukskei River ,
I realized that I was witnessing a "kill"...
If you look carefully you will spot a hovering Giant Kingfisher about to pounce
And lots of bashing before it was successful in swallowing it's prey.
This species sighting was a first for me...and I only had to travel 20 minutes to witness this!
This is why I love living in Africa.
The venue also provided a jumping castle for all the parties to use.
This young guest decided that it could also be used as a hammock.
This Spaniel puppy found a discarded ice-cream cone...
With so many dogs around, I am certain that NOTHING goes to waste!
My wife doing her bit for "Save the Rhino"...
If you are planning a children's party, then this is a great venue for that.
They supply food and everything you need to make the party a success.
And the best thing...
When it is all over, you pack up the presents and leave!
