India of Simnikan – “Indy” 2011-2021

I have posted before about our dear Indy who went ahead of us to the Rainbow Bridge on 21 May 2021. When Indy was about 18 months old, in 2012, I made a YouTube video of Indy playing hide and seek with my wife. A few days ago my grandson told me that the video has been viewed over 20K times (actually over 23800 views). I never knew. What a tribute to our faithful friend, companion and protector. Please scroll down. There you will find a link to the YouTube video and a picture of where Indy’s ashes are buried – beneath some white flowers next to the gate where she often lay, guarding us.

Always faithful – On guard for ever

Memories of Bulawayo and the Falls

Visiting the Victoria Falls

On strip roads. Bulawayo to Wankie. On “the Falls Road” Mom driving. My great uncle from New Zealand with us. Half way house. Dusty. The car not going well near Wankie as we pass a notice warning about elephants. Exciting. Arriving in Wankie. The car needs fixing. Staying at the hotel in Wankie and waiting for a part to come for the car. Car fixed. On to the Falls. Seeing the spray from the falls – “the smoke that thunders”. Trying unsuccessfully to catch a tiger fish from the bank in the Zambezi just above the falls. Rod way too small. Then, back on the strips. Going home. But first have to cross an angry swollen river using a low bridge with no side rails. Mom will not drive over the bridge. She asks a chap who turned up in a truck, to drive our car across. He does. Home at last. What an African adventure for a nine year old.
