Zebras. They didn't stay too long though.
07:56 July 20 - Hi Gerda!! Thank you for your greeting. So nice to hear from our friend from The Netherlands! Have a wonderful day, Gerda. Best regards to you.
Goodmorning all Thank you J FUNNY
07:28 July 20 - Three elephants arrived for a drink at the right hand side of the small waterhole. Are they strangers and unfamiliar with the waterpipe?? Hmmm, now that's different, I just saw one of them walk around from the right side and across the front. Then it stood on the waterpipe as if it didn't know it was there. After a few moments just walked on to the left side where the other two elephants moved to. And all of them now drinking water on the far side of the small waterhole. I wonder if the waterpipe has been turned off. But then again, that one elephant hadn't paid any attention to it at all. Hey elephants where did you travel from, please tell me! Well, when I typed this last part, I scrolled back up and saw that one of the elephants walked over to the waterpipe, investigated with its trunk for a moment, then walked off. At least one of them knows what it is. So, I think I'm right that the waterpipe has been turned off. We all know that the elephants enjoy the fresh water flowing out of there. I'm going to sign off of the narration of this little saga.....they're leaving now anyway. And by the time I have finished this post and proofread it before submitting, can you believe it, it's 07:43. Gee whiz, it takes me a while to write these!
6:59 in Kenya and 11:59 where I live. Beautiful sunrise and bet I will sleep thru mine!
04:19 July 20 - I'm back after Skyline 'webcamming' elsewhere. 1) Four elephants at the small waterhole, of whom two have babies, one baby older than the other. The fourth elephant is not a parent. What lovely animals! 2) Someday, I will tell you the wonderful story of what I observed on a TV documentary here in the USA of Kenya elephant orphan rescue, nursery, and when they are old enough to be released back into the wild when they can survive on their own. The orphaned babies are adoptable with public donations. And I wonder if any of those released orphans are seen on this Kenya webcam. I recorded the program, but have to watch it again with my laptop on my lap and take notes while watching. Then I will need to edit it into a length that will be acceptable here, at the same time relaying the complete story. So stay tuned.
03:45 elephants want to sleep.
03:32 July 20 - A small family of elephants having a drink at the small waterhole. Includes a small baby. Boy, I got a lot of "small"'s in there, didn't I?
03:11 July 20 - 1) Same as what Deborah Schroeder said, not a creature is stirring. I don't even see the gaggle of storks. (I'm using gaggle, as a term for a group). Must be cloudy again tonight, because far distant visibility is non existent when the camera shows both waterholes in total. I have a clock that shows the phases of the moon. The moon is now showing just three quarters. So my cloudless wonderful views here of the whole terrain on this night vision camera, is waning.....boo hoo!! But wait....there's more!.....there will be next month, when we will have the next full moon; it is so beautiful. 2) By the way, happy 50th anniversary of the first USA astronauts that walked on the moon.....now that's a real trip folks! Lots of TV coverage and events here this week. The walk occurred on July 20, 1969. I remember where I was watching as it happened live. Good memory.
Yes, sad for Tiger, but also for Rory.... Should be a great tourney for the final two days!
:42 and not a creature is stirring-oops that is Christmas Story. Very quiet out there for right now. Watched golf and wow-is Ireland beautiful. Those of you who have been there are so lucky. Sad for Tiger.
23:00 July 19 - Thanks for the encouragement to keep up the overnight updates with what's going on with the wildlife here. I know I keep mentioning this, but since July 4, Skyline has not fixed my problems with the site. When I click on anything the browser screen turns grey and I can see through it to everything behind it, but I'm prevented from doing anything. Sooooo!, if at some point I somehow disappear from here, Skyline has messed me up even further. I have contacted them multiple times. All of this started happening before the Premium button showed up. They did get back to me about the purpose of the button, and said that those of us prior to the Premium offer will be able to do everything as we have been doing.
21:55 July 19 - Hi, I'm back. Took a few hours off like you have to in your time zone. It's dark and lot of bats swooshing around.....lots of bats, lots of bugs! 1) Hey Rita, thanks for your note. Rory's Thursday round was 79....ouch! Today, Friday, I saw his chip and putt at 18. He ended the round at 65, +2, but might not make the cut for Saturday's round. I think the cut is not over +1. The crowd is enthusiastically cheering for him. Storks are busying themselves around the waterholes.
thats one big ellie
