Pete’s Pond

Here’s something for those Friday blahs. Known as Pete’s Pond, National Geographic’s WildCam Africa requires the latest RealPlayer plugin and a broadband connections. If you meet those requirements you’re in for a treat because this live webcam is at a watering hole in Botswana. I have it running as I write this and just saw a troop of baboons playing at the water’s edge as I listened to the sounds of the birds, animals, and insects. I heard about this from friends who put this on instead of TV when they go to bed at night. They say the sounds are terrifically soothing. Wow! Here comes an elephant!
