Loved all the pics from the CD!! Very proud of all of you making it across the bridge- with great smiles on your faces.

WV looked gorgeous- I have always heard how beautiful it is, but have never stopped, only briefly clipped it driving through to somewhere else.

MEK- hope you enjoy Williamsburg- I have always read good things about the timeshares there. And good-luck moving into college-

BTW- have you looked over on Mousecellaneous? Jim Lewis got fired without severance- big stuff- 2 other execs were let go as well. Aulani hasn't been sold for the past month because of a screw-up with underestimating annual dues on points. There are some fascinating threads over there on the DVC boards....

I know. We are all smiling big time! That was so fun to see! It was contagious! It was great. Knowing you - you would be bouncing that bridge too!

And I only saw a very small section of it. I bet there is some gorgeous scenery there. Nick spent several days there before soccer camp and he loved it!

I was there once before when the boys were much younger. We did mostly BG and the water park because we didn't think they would tolerate the history part. I want to do more history!

I heard that and I read a little bit about it yesterday. But nothing of substance. Guess I better go back and read some more today! Interesting indeed!

Lunch on Safari

A few last trek pics of our lunch and end of the day. On a side note, I am REALLY glad I didn't buy Aulani yet with the big news...not really sure what it means for those who did or what the mess really is but I'm glad to wait it out!

I was SO close, twice!

Not sure if I posted this one before, if so sorry, these guys were not remotely interested in us but wow, fun to watch!



















































I loved loved loved watching the elephants!

Awesome pictures, Cynthia. Mark LOVES elephants and that in itself is making me go buy a lotto ticket today to see if I can win the money for the trek.

Seriously, you got some great shots; thank you for sharing.

Kathy - I think you NEED to do this trek. You guys would love it!!!!!

Those are great. Those are the rest of our photopass shots, right?

Except - I can tell you there was no way that lion picture was taken during our trek. NO WAY!!!!! They must have some stock photos they put in there. Apparently, I didn't need Glen's lion picture after all.

I do love our group shot at the end. I remember them taking it!

Watching the elephants bury themselves in the mud was not only really cool (because how they heck do they breath), but it was really funny!

Celeste! Thanks for joining in the fun. Hope you had a great August trip. I did notice your title. I'm going to head over there and check it out!

Well here's what's interesting about the lion pic. It was definitely numbered as if it was taken during our trek versus some other stock ones at the end with a totally different naming system (I didn't include those). I do have a "real" lion pic...taken by Evan back in 2009.

What? You mean I turned my back and the lion stood up???? Impossible! I noticed I didn't take my zoom lens so that could explain why I didn't try again. But, still, I NEVER get the lion!

These are really good, by the way. Go Evan!

Mary Ellen - the lion did get up VERY briefly on our trek. It was one of those get up, switch positions and lie immediately right back down moves. I was watching but wasn't quick enough to catch it with the camera. This is all I got.

OK - I can't see these pictures right now, but something tells me they are better than any lion picture I've ever gotten. All these wonderful lion pictures. I am riding the safari until I get a good one in December. It is now my mission!

Thanks for sharing C!!!!!
