Michigan Invasion! -Aug 2015

So about a year ago our good friend John contacted us about wanting to bring a group from his church in Michigan.  I (Heather) have known John and his wife Suzie for about 19 years. We were thrilled at the idea. Over the last year we hashed out the details and they decided to come […]

Safari and Zanzibar all in 5 days! -Sept. 2015

I’m so behind in posts and although I have a few cued and almost ready to go I figured I might as well start with the most recent and work backwards.  The electricity has been very unreliable over the last month and now seems to back back and working.  We don’t hold our breath around […]

Zanzibar Revisited -Jan 2015
