I thought today that I would share pictures from my trip to Crescent Island on Lake Naivasha. Crescent Island is where much of the film "Out Of Africa" was filmed. And when they were making the movie, they brought in animals to make it seem more African. The animals were left at the end of production, and now it is an animal park that you can walk around on.

We took a boat ride over to the island so that we could see some hippos along the way. So, without further ado, the pictures:
|Katie and Carolyn ready for the boatride|
|Waterbuck grazing by the lake|
|A hippo checking out the boat as it passes|
|I saw a hippo!|
|Another shot of the island and the lake|
|A herd of wildabeests|
|Zebra grazing in front of acacia trees|
|More wildabeests and zebras|
|Can you find the giraffes hiding in the trees?|
|There they are!|
|1 month old giraffe|
|A couple more giraffes eating from the trees.|

|Me with Mt. Longonot in the background|

It was a fantastic trip out to the island, and very fun to adventure before the craziness of the term begins. I am working on getting lesson plans ready and watching auditions to select the choir members for this year.
Thanks for reading, and I will post again soon with more adventures!
