WOYWW December 22nd

I am back and I went to The Gambia.
I have caught a virus so not crafting till I feel better.
I stroked the crocodile and it was dry and lumpy for those that asked. I will be back when I get over this bug. My throat is like sandpaper:-((((

Where am I
I have shaken hands with a crocodile. Yes it is a real one, they have been fish fed so not interested in humans. LOL
I have eaten the best fish and chips here on the Atlantic coast in my whole life.
Leave and answer in your comments to win my new plate of verse stamps.
The competition will finish when I return if i return coz it is so warm here, the sun is shining and not a cloud in sight.
Leaving this up for another week. On my way back to the UK today.

Don't forget to hop over to Julia's for the weekly snoop.
The Link is on the side bar

Don't think I'd be stood by your side while shaking hands with that crocodile. You are so brave....or is it foolish? :-) :-)
If you fancy being in with a chance to win a little knitted Christmas bear and haven't already put your name down then pop over to my blog to be in with a chance :-)

Looks like Florida to me, but that is the only state in the south east that I've been to. Well, I've been to Virginia and they don't have crocodiles or gators.
Hope you're having a wonderful time.

Once again I'm playing WOYWW catch-up. I had a computer meltdown and didn't know where I had left off in the numbers. Glad I came by though, since I think it's in Florida and possibly in the Everglades. Wherever it is, have a fun and safe time. Happy belated from # 4.

Amanda said...

I think I will leave you alone with the crocodile, I will be to one running in the opposite direction.

Minxy said...

Thats a great 'snap' of you and the croc, but rather you than me.

Happy WOYWW & Happy Christmas too

Love the photo of the crocodile. Daft question, but is it scaly of foot, or does it feel nice and supple?

I have no idea where you are, but it looks great!

What a great time you are having - lovely to see you!

I came across a crocodile in Oz when we were on a small boat in a river - luckily with a tour guide. It was huge!
