The ‘Mitey’ Rains

This time of the year is known to us in the Selous as the 'Short Rains'.This we have found to be rather non-descriptive and would like to rename it to the "sparse, sometimes morning, mostly afternoon, big storm, heavy and light rains."

 

The daily sequence goes something along the line of the following...

'Another fantastic sunny day here at Sand Rivers Selous'

Says Cameron

'Why yes it is Cam, what a wonderful place we live in'

Says Kate

 

 

An hour later...

'Should we enjoy a cold drink along with the view down the Rufiji River?'

Says Kate

'That is a splendid idea, drinks are on me...'

Says Cameron

 

 

'Oh goodness, where did that humongous cloud come from' 

Says Kate

'Did you not learn about the water cycle in Geography class, haha'

Says Cameron

 

5 Minutes later...

'Quick get the brollies, we are going to get soaked '

Says Kate

'What on earth are brollies!?'

Says Cameron

 

 

 

 

A couple hours after the rains have fallen...

 

'Quick, lets go get ready for dinner' 

Says Cameron

'Wow look at all these fluffy red insects on the ground'

Says Kate

'Awesome, they are called Red Velvet Mites...best get out your macro lens'

Says Cameron

'Snap!'
