Afternoon Tea, Misty Afternoon & Monkeys.

It was a cool day and we were out in the open enjoying the cool fresh air. We were armed with our cameras ready for anything that caught our interest. We enjoyed the mist around us while in the highlands.
The time was about 3 pm.

A photo shot before going in for our afternoon tea.
I was dreaming of coffee.....

Beautiful red and yellow flowers in harmony with each other.
Afternoon tea was served at 3.15 pm.
We had freshly baked scones, coffee & tea
We can have the scones plain or with the butter and jam provided. Some of us requested the less sweetened orange marmalade from the kitchen.
After tea, some watched TV, some played games on our smart phones, while some munched on snacks. And some took cat naps. Can you guess what I did?
By about 4.30 pm we were all out in the open air again. We happened to be standing near the fence next to the garage when we heard rustling on the tree tops.
We spotted monkeys! Big and small monkeys swinging from trees to trees! They were having a fun time and we enjoyed watching them.
Not easy to get clear shots of the monkeys because of the mist.
Some were very shy. Every time I tried to get a good focus on one big monkey, it managed to get out of focus. Sigh!
These monkeys have very long and thick tails,
This particular monkey was not shy. It was taking its own sweet time feeding on a tree top.
It was feeding on the young leaves or fruits of the tree.

Thanks to our friend who got some good close up shots of the one feeding on the tree top. All the while, it was watching us.

I wondered what was on its mind. "These funny humans haven't seen a monkey before?" We watched until they were out of our sight but we could still hear them moving among the trees.
Then we took a walk downhill and then uphill to another rest house.
The time was about 5 pm. We need to burn up some calories before our next meal!

We saw many seedlings of the Giant Agave plants. Will it grow in the lowland? Anyway we collected a few for our friends to try to grow in their big compound.

This is what I have asked of God for you:

that you will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love,

and that you will have the rich experience of knowing Christ

with real certainty and clear understanding.

For God's secret plan, now at last made know, is Christ himself.

In him lie hidden all the mighty,

untapped treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

(Colossians 2:2-3, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. Nancy, I'm so curious about the giant agave plant that you just picked to replant...it's wonderful that they drop seedlings to regenerate. Hope your friend will manage to grow them successfully too:)

  19. The monkeys made it a perfect day! And your up close shots are SO good!!! They have sad little faces. Seeing things in the mist makes everything so moody and beautiful!! Like a dreamland. I just LOVE your gorgeous shots of the bare trees in the mist, they are art! You should make a collage and frame them to hang on your wall. Are these your parents? They are so good looking!
