Elephants in Goa

Good trip out for the day.  Yea!  Looking for some elephants first so that Ann could have a ride on them

The elephant feeding himself outside his carers hut. He kept me company while Ann was riding away.

Ann didn't get the bath she wanted with the elephants, but she did get a ride up the road. You can see how happy she is on her elephant.

and me to take some photographs.  We managed to get there early in the morning so we didnt have to wait for a queue to reduce. Ann managed to get straight on to her elephant which makes a big difference when there are so many people around.  At four oclock this afternoon we’d have to wait an hour in the humity to get a ride.

Ann was so excited it took us a while to get her to calm down so she could put her legs over the elephants back so she could hang on tight prior to the time he was ready to go.
