Lunch…

I took these pictures at the lunch area at Whitestone School in Bulawayo, the boarding school my kids attended…Lunch

The hostel has since closed , but my kids will forever be enriched from time they spent there. They loved it. The school is built in amongst granite outcrops, the indigenous trees left to grow unhindered by the school buildings.   The kids play in the little kopjies, where they find insects, birds, gecko’s…well all sorts. Lunch

Below is the tree overlooking the tea area. The matrons stood here and handed out Mazoe Orange juice and sandwiches. Now, it appears the only one eating lunch here are these cute little squirrels…Lunch

Nature is amazing – we can sit and watch for ages…. Trees are amazing too. I love hugging them. My gorwn daughters have a fit. I stand in awe of trees. They survive against all odds.

This one is a specimen! My kids are just so “over” mum and her hugging trees and stopping to stare at a view – I get that deep breath/huffing sigh in stereo when I do! (They call us hippies with their friends! – good excuse!)

There MUST be tree huggers in the UK – my grandmother always woke at a the crack of dawn – walked half way up the mountain before breakfast, called mid winter weather “brisk” and threw all the windows open to “let some air in here…” She introduced me to the pleasures of a dog on the bed, a tiny gecko and of course, trees…and she was as English as they make them!

Yes – I have the sea a mile in front of me – the Jurassic coast on both sides and the New Forest (ancient so no idea on the name) at my back. Plenty to hug 🙂
