The Philadelphia Zoo (*Movie*)

Our first trip of the season. We look forward to many more!

A Horse Built for TWO!

What a GREAT day for the ZOO!  We upgraded our membership so we can “ride the rides” now, and boy did we have fun!

p.s. We took the “swan” out for a spin, and good thing there wasn’t a movie of that adventure!  Ours wouldn’t steer at all!

“I’ll race you!”

It was funny to see them herding the TORTOISES back to their home!  The keepers start VERY early, as these guys are SLOOOOWWWWW for sure!  It’s kind of cute to see them “animated“ in their own turtle way!

Some People have Dogs…

I’ve never witnessed a tortoise acting this “personable” before!  He was downright adorable, as he followed his keeper toward his enclosure.

The Lonely Horse

This beautiful old guy lives in a barn all by himself, on a big estate (open to the public).  He had some goat friends, but they’re gone now.

Friday Afternoon

A brief moment between skipping stones & going for ice cream.

Chanticleer in Springtime (2009) *Movie*

From our adventures last year. Shot on a tiny Kodak Zi6. Amazing little device!

The Polar Bear (*Movie*)

Polar bears are the coolest!
