The Laurencekirk ladies Social Club met on May 1 in the Mearns Community Centre for their AGM and Wine Evening.
A good turnout of ladies enjoyed watching a film and hearing about one of their own members, Liz Carnie, and her partner Colin’s safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana.
It was amazing to see the animals at such close proximity in their natural habitat.
From an early age, Liz has nurtured a passion for animals.
Elephants in particular are one of her favourites.
The ladies saw Liz and Colin’s basic accommodation while they watched the lions, tigers, giraffes, cheetahs, monkeys and leopards.
Liz is so passionate about her safari’s and the wildlife in those far off lands, but for me, five star or under the stars - I know which one I would prefer! CONTRIBUTED
