Augrabies Falls

The word "Augrabies" comes a from a Khoi phrase meaning "Place of great noise."  The khoi used to avoid the waterfall because they believed it was the home of a monster.  

On our first full day in the park, Andy and I wandered around the falls, admiring the views and the neat potholes in the rocks.

When we stopped for lunch, Andy invented a new food:  hard-boiled eggs wrapped in slices of ham.  Very tasty.

Dozens of lizards ran around us while we were eating lunch.  I think they were after our crumbs. They were not shy at all.  One of them ran up on my shoe.
