Souvenirs from Africa

A passport full of stamps

A cheerful Hippo candle
hand made in Swaziland.

A pair of carved Elephants
which will last a lifetime.

A Hat presented by new friends.

A precious can of Liptons Iced Tea.

but no photos...
because MissM dropped her camera
into a rock pool in Mozambique.

Oh no!
The elephants are sweet, though...

I'm sorry about the photos, but I love your elephants. And the hippo!

Beautiful souveniers.

That's funny because Miss Ashleigh dropped her camera into the ocean in Italy.

Do they know the purpose of wrist straps?

Gina said...

Oh dear! The memories won't be lost though.

There are some happy crabs in MOzambique then?

And no doubt will have a less than cool but undoubtedly sensible neck strap for the next one she buys! :o)

Marmadaisy said...

Oh no! What a shame, still at least Miss M didn't lose HERSELF in a rock pool in Mozambique.

I guess she'll have to back and take more photos then...

Oops!

Love the elephants - make sure they face the door when they find their spot in your home...

OH NO! So much for the new camera huh?

The gifts are very nice though. I like the elephant candle. It looks just like you.

Just stumbled across your blog, what a fascinating read. What lovely adventures Master and Miss M are on! Shame about the camera but lovely souvenirs and I'm sure lots of lovely memories

Garden Girl said...

...but what a cool place to drop a camera?!Bit more exciting than dropping it in Tesco. Glad she's home safe.x

Oh no! I can't believe you dropped your camera. That's so horrible.
