Ghana | Part II

I posted some photos of the 8 Oaks girls over on Kate’s blog- http://landonandkate.blogspot.com/2014/05/guest-post-sally-buffy.html 

This part of our trip we were traveling around Ghana and visited a monkey sanctuary. The scenery in the area was beautiful and it is so cool to have a monkey hang out on your shoulder! :)

The day before we headed back to the yellow house, we got to stay in a beautiful hotel with a beautiful view :)

We happily made our way back to spend a few more days at the Yellow House. See more photos of our time there on Kate’s blog soon!

Ghana | Part I

I have a feeling this trip is going to take several ‘parts’ to blog- I took SO many photos. I have had trouble narrowing which ones to share. As most of you know, we went to visit my brother and sister in law and the 8 girls they care for- see 8oaks.org. As a means of privacy for them we will not be sharing photos of the girls here, but I will be sharing on Kate’s blog and will post when it is up!

Here are some photos of our adventures (my mom, me, Landon + Kate). We traveled some within the country- through jungles to waterfalls and to see monkeys (see part II for the monkeys!).

Jungle millipede.

This crab made me scream on the trail. I thought it was a very large black spider at first glance. Who knew there were crabs in the jungle?

waterfall + all those dots on the rocks are fruit bats.
