::couples trip ::

Leon and I were finally able to get away for a little trip at the end of March.  It was divine.  We went with some friends of ours.  That couple is an immense blessing to me.  They are just fantastic.  And to top it off, Donald flies!  So he flew us to our destination.  What a treat.

Now the lodge we went to was the same place we visited with my parents in October.  We weren't necessarily there for game viewing although it was nice to see a few animals.  In October, the water is at the lowest level for the year; the grass is dry; the animals are hungry and thirsty.  So game viewing is at its peak.  End of March, not so much.  There's abundant water and the grass is high providing good camouflage for the animals.

We went on a night drive which was a fun experience. I didn't want to take the kids on a night drive in October.  Someday, we will definitely take a night drive in October at peak viewing time.  That will be an unforgettable experience.

Anyways.  Our chief accomplishments were:  sleeping in, lounging on the gorgeous deck, eating, and chatting with our friends.

I think all couples should try to go away every now and again.  You remember that you actually LIKE each other.  Maybe it's just us.  But, we're lucky if we get one date night out per month.  So we desperately need couple reconnect time.

 If anyone comes to visit Z, we highly (highly!) recommend this lodge.  You will not be disappointed.
