Pink Saturday

Oh no, not at all!

Your very own plunge pool right outside your lovely khaya. Somewhere special to soak away dust and weariness when you return from the morning game drive which started with that 6:00AM wake up call.......safaris require plenty of energy!

Pots of bright PINK bougainvillea ~ PINK blooms on the trees beyond the wall...........

...........even some PINK in the pool tiles and umbrellas.

Fabulous Rattray's Camp at Mala Mala, South Africa ~ a perfect place to stay.  More coming up later on my visit there.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend ~ be sure to visit our hostess Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for tons of pink posts.


  1. Hola Mary, so happy to meet you and your incredible travels... I think your animal pictures are so great, much, much better than many professional ones I have seen, and there`s a lot out there.
    Thank you for your interest in my blog, I`m a fan of you now!!

  2. Your African photos are truly amazing..

  3. WOW, sugar, those are fantastic photos but I think I'd be scared to death coming that close to lions and leopards! But having a pool to one's own self would be neat. Fantastic, chick!!!

  4. Oh my word what luxury in such a hostile enviroment with wild animals lurking about!You are living my dream!Thank you for sharing all your wonderful photos..I loved seeing the elephants in previous photos!

  5. This is my first time on your blog and love it! and by the way, I want one of these to soak my stress away.

  6. Mary, your photographs of Africa take my breath away. Truly spectacular. I can only imagine what the scene was like in person. Memories will flood your mind forever.

  7. I never knew Africa could be so refreshing and relaxing!

    Happy Pink Saturday, Mary!

  8. Oh dear Mary, thank you so much for stopping by to tell me about your new blog. The photos are amazing. I would not want to go to a place like that without a really good camera. Our granddaughter just got back from her honeymoon this a.m. They went to South Africa two weeks ago. I have a friend who works in Botswana. She is director of a preschool for children with AIDS and an associate of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. I went back to see all your shots. Great job.

  9. Wonderful pictures and such an adventure. Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful weekend.


  10. Mary, perfect pinks! Love the idea of that serene spot. Would love to be there this very minute!
    Stop by my PS post to catch up on some upcoming parties. You may want to participate.
    Enjoy the weekend. ~ Sarah

  11. What a great post, thank you for sharing! Happy Pink Saturday!! Esther XX

  12. Pinks in Africa make a special and lovely statement. I know that dip must have been welcome refreshment.

    Happy Pink Saturday, Mary.

  13. Now I would just love to have one of those!

  14. Lovely Pinks!!! Were there tons of prep for the World Cup when you were there? I think about where you were when I watch!! One reporter said they had 3G coverage where ever they WENT!! I guess towers are easier than lines though. I hope it doesn't make the beautiful place look to commercial though! Love that pool! I am so glad you had a great time! I went to Suzanna's today and you are right it is looking great!
    Hugs, Lisa

  15. Now that's a relaxing pink Saturday!!
    Take Care!
