These happy photos are a continuation of my animal theme today, and just what I need, because today is the day my sister and her family travel back to New Zealand. After spending just over a week with me, they traveled to the coast to be with her husband's family. On their way back to Johannesburg they spent another two nights with me and today is their flight. These cute monkey photos were taken by my talented brother-in-law.
These vervet monkeys are commonly found on the South Coast of KZN, South Africa, and regarded by many as pests. My brother-in-law told me the troop leader was not happy with him taking the photos and adopted a very aggressive stance. This could possibly be because there were so many babies! Anyway these monkey photos cheered me up a little, as I am very sad my sister's visit is over now.
