That Key Lime dessert sounds heavenly. I am sorry that the pool was too cold for you, but watching the giraffes with night vision goggles sounds divine.

I love the hot tubs at Jambo. It was way too cold to use the pool when we stayed at Kidani. You're making me homesick for CL with all these pictures! Beautiful sunrise! Rarely do I see those beautiful.or not!

I really liked that show, but Fran said it was too scary so she deleted all my episodes and removed it from the TIVO. Someday I'll have to get the DVDs and watch it.

It really was the most delicious dessert of the trip. We looked forward to it making a return, and one of the few nights we missed getting back in time it was there. We asked the next night.

It was hard to leave, the giraffe was just so beautiful. It was a very serene magical experience that's for sure.

I love the food at the Mara. I think its one of the best QS places.

Breakfast in the CL looks pretty good, too.

I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a sunrise. I leave in the dark for work so miss them, and when I'm not working I sleep in!

Lots more pictures to come, hopefully you'll be abe to get back soon.

Why couldn't she leave them on there for you to enjoy?

It kept getting better and better each episode, I just loved it. Not sure if I'll be able to wait until the next season is on DVD or not. It wasn't the worst cliff hanger but I still really want to know what happens next.

Thanks Since I was up that early I figured I needed proof

I know, what sweet irony. The reaction just keeps getting worse and worse every time I have any. Best to just stay away from it completely, I don't want to experience that again. I'm just glad it didn't effect the rest of the trip.

We really enjoyed the Mara, and went back several times this trip. I have to say I was a little tired of it by the end. So many good places to eat and everyone was too tired at the end of the day to go with me. Since it was a family trip I didn't want to go off on my own for dinner.

Breakfast was delicious, mom and I made good use of the CL. R & M not so much. More on that later....

I was thinking the very same thing, Alison.

I was thinking the same thing that Mary Ellen was: You live in Maryland and you are allergic to crabs? I really miss the Chesapeake Bay crabcakes here in Florida. Central Florida doesn't have the best seafood.

Great updates!

After I had some breakfast and mom had some coffee we went animal hunting. We ended up exploring pretty much the entire left side of the resort. We’d go all the way to the end and down the stairs and back inside, down more hallways, down more stairs until we had found our way to the lobby once again. It was a great expedition. There were, however, not many animals to be found. It was absolutely scorching outside and this was all before 9:00.

Some more pictures from the CL before we left.





I had not noticed these giant spears before.



I did not get tired of this gorgeous view.



Sometimes mom gets in a silly posing mood.



View of the CL from the bridge.



R & M’s room was right in-between the columns.



I thought this was really cool.





We did find a pelican.



And then a lot more.



Anybody know why these doors are so big? It wasn’t a Royal Suite, those had a plaque announcing what they were.



They had their own special spears as wall decoration.



I thought the detailing was very cool





We finally found some more animals. Storks I think. Please correct me if I’m wrong.



I do love these pelicans.





More life!





I even love the hallways in Jambo House.



What is that mom doing wandering into my picture?



Some very cool masks on display.





A wonderful sitting area they have. There are a few scattered around level 2.

I never noticed the other birds below the ostriches.





I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the lobby.



Looking down at Victoria Falls and Boma
