I discovered this amazing webcam in late September 2006. There are very few days since then that I have not been glued here whenever possible. I joined up in March, but this is the first time I have posted, as I realize I have soooo much to learn yet, but I so enjoy your info and links which you so generously share.
I am retired, live in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada (in the midst of the vineyards and wineries & on the shore of the most beautiful lake you ever saw) and admire all creatures -- but I am not overly fond of those with more than 6 legs....LOL ....although the shongolos impressed the heck out of me.
I am about 6 hours drive from the ocean and every fall I go to the north of Vancouver Island to spend 5 - 7 days whale watching - mostly resident Orcas, but we also see humpbacks, minke whales, sea lions, seals, bald eagles, and many other things. It is my safari in my corner of the world, & is absolutely the highlight of my year.....Africa is way out of reach, as much as I would love to go there.
We had a "Game Farm" in our area many years ago, and I volunteered there with my daughter. We were privileged to have close contact with many of the wonderful animals I see on cam, but of course, it was nothing like it would be to see them in the wild. My admiration for them continues to grow each time I find out some new interesting thing about them.
Am eagerly looking forward to the Game Drive Cams at month's end and I read with envy the accounts posted on the Djuma Link. I only get to imagine what you are all seeing - I have never ever been able to connect to the drive cam, though I try diligently every day. I guess I am too far out in the wild wild west....LOL.
Anyhow, that's enough. I will be around and am very glad to be a part of this wonderful endeavour and to be in the company of such a nice group of people.
