Here is is holding HOPE. [and he is hope - :-)]
The HS outing to !Khwa ttu was unfortunately cancelled very late on the day and we had decided to be early, so we got there as the outing was being cancelled.
Terri and I had travelled together so we decided to enjoy the location and show the kids the photo gallery, craft shop and the manager put on a DVD that detailed that hunting techniques used by the San people. It showed the children the importance of the animal tracks and how the San people become so in tune with the animal they are hunting that they start 'being' the animal. VERY FASCINATING!
As we were leaving, Terri stopped the car are suggested to the kids they look for springbok tracks - Zooooooom they were out the car and up to the challenge. Caleb [the adventure seeker... ] was in the lead and followed some tracks until.....
Yes! He found a dead springbok..... [So what are the odds on that happening?]
Mike the manager inspected the find and confirmed that it had been dead for about a week [poooo... it sure smelt like it!] and then he removed the horns for the children. He then spent time with the children showing them how the termites build their clever nests.
