Here's another shot from our recent Zambia trip. It was such a fun trip, I'm still reminiscing.

Here's a photo I took this week, just before Ophelia hit, of our parliament buildings up at Stormont here in Belfast. It's a nice park to visit and home of some complex politics. :)

Traditional fisherman on a mission crossing the upper Zambezi River. These cover amazing distance on that river, checking their nets and carrying goods up and down the river.

This little champ is 6 months old today. What an amazing 6 months it's been. Truly the best 6 months of my life. He gets cuter every day. It's been one of my greatest joys in life to watch him grow and for his personality to form. What a privilege it is to be his Dad.

Here's a photo from our recent trip to Zambia. These locals have an interesting life and create these little fishing settlements all along the river every year. When the rains come, they'll be long gone inland in bigger villages as these little fishing villages will be washed away and absorbed into the flood plains. It takes them roughly about a week to put together their huts and get things set up, all made from materials on the river bank (mud, thatch grass and trees). They live quite a nomadic life. It's unlikely the kids go to school and if they do, it's unlikely they go to school past primary years. The canoes (locally known as Makoro) are their livelihood as traditional fisherman and are carved from a single tree inland and dragged to the river using oxen. A very basic life, but the funny thing is that you'll probably find they have cell phones and other western things as well. A fascinating thing to see and experience.

I drove past this old church last night that's just around the corner from where we live. I liked the look of it, so I popped out to take some photos of it. It's a pretty busy intersection, with a bunch of cars that passed as I was taking the photo.

This morning we went for a walk around Botanic Gardens. The weather was pretty bad, but we still got out for a nice walk.

I took this photo of a sunrise on Smitskraal Farm, a property my family have farmed on for nearly 100 years. It's an amazing place with amazing family history and memories. One of my favourite things about it is the sunrises that occur when the sun peeps over the Kopjies (rocky outcrops) in the distance, as in this photo.
