Tovrea Castle – Part 2

I was always fascinated, even as a child, by antiques and ancient times. I always felt I should have been born in the 17th or 18th century. They really had a big stone castle with authentic furniture. Margaret O’Brien

Tovrea Castle – Part 1

I love fairy tales because of their haunting beauty and magical strangeness. They are set in worlds where anything can happen. Frogs can be kings, a thicket of brambles can hide a castle where a royal court has lain asleep for a hundred years, a boy can outwit a giant, and a girl can break a curse withc nothing but her courage and steadfastness.

Wildlife World Zoo 

For better or worse, zoos are how most people come to know big or exotic animals. Few will ever see wild penguins sledding downhill to sea on their bellies, giant pandas holding bamboo lollipops in China or tree porcupines in the Canadian Rockies, balled up like giant pine cones. Diane Ackerman

I love the Wildlife World Zoo on the west side of Phoenix, Arizona.  I just don’t get there as often as I would like.  Here are a few photos from my last visit to their zoo…

I said it was gonna be a random week of photos right?  

Not sure what happened here!  Haha. 

Until tomorrow, LAF 

Thoughts for the Day…

How many photographs can one girl take?  Quite a few actually.  I have so many photographs that are just sitting in this cloud, that computer, oh some on my iPad, countless photos on SD cards.  It’s crazy.  I get so much enjoyment from taking the photographs and editing them, but it is soooo out of hand.  

Recently I’ve been working on putting a photo book together of the trip I took of my trip to Ireland four years ago!  Thank goodness I documented my thoughts, photos and experiences on this blog.  I’ve been working on a document that I will make into a PDF, which I will then make into a magazine, of all my Ireland blog posts.   It has been a lot of work, but the hard part was already done. 

So, for myself and for those that want to follow along, I plan on posting more often so that at the very least I will have my photos and experiences in one place.  Wish me luck!!  

Pics above taken at Out of Africa Wildlife Zoo.
