Alligator Adventure: Feathered Friends

Welcome Back!

This time I have some photos of the pretty birds found at the Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach. They include macaws, snuggling in the first photo, a bunch of my favourite shots of the swans, who were following us around the pond (we had corn) and a couple of emus. The emus are found on the trail around the whole Adventure. It's a nice walk around there as you can see other farm animals and more alligators of course!

Well, I'm sure glad this week is almost over..it's been tiring with appointments and getting up early! I don't know how I managed to do all these appointments and work before! :-)

This weekend, will find me sorting through some spring clothes to launder and pack as we leave next Friday morning! I can't wait..I'm so ready to ditch this snow!

I'll have another post early next week! Enjoy your weekend!

Alligator Adventure: More Alligators!

Welcome Back!

This week I have more alligator shots...I think one more week of them and then I'll be done...just in time to head back there for a visit...this time they have wolves and red kangaroos on display, so that should be interesting--something new to shoot.

Well, I managed to get some homework done on Saturday, still have a couple of lessons to do then the exam! Have to get it submitted by the time I leave for March Break! We took Brooke to the train on Sunday and she left for a few more weeks! She'll soon be home for the summer! Yay!

Tomorrow I get the pleasure of sitting at the Dodge dealer for 4 hours for scheduled maintenance for Kevin's van! Lots of fun---not! Oh well, at least I have lots of reading material to take with me! :-) Zeek has a hair appointment on Thursday, so I'll be home alone all afternoon, without a small dog on my lap--whatever will I do without him! At least he'll be ready for the beach!

More later this week!

Alligator Adventure: Birds, Birds, Birds!

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting some birds from the Alligator Adventure. I'm not sure what kind the first two are... I was aiming to get a "foot" shot of the first bird..it's got really big feet! The rest of the shots are ducks and swans.

Next time I'll have more alligator shots..almost done with them!

This week has been crazy..we've had more snow days then school days! Brooke and I managed to hang out at the mall the other day and the gym yesterday! Today I had an appointment with Career Edge for help with the job hunting. I think I'll be doing HTML/CSS homework all weekend as I'm a bit behind! :-(  Brooke heads back on the train on Sunday. Wow, the week sure went by fast!

Have a great weekend!

Alligator Adventure: Smaller Alligators

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting more alligators from the Alligator Adventure in Myrtle Beach. These are all small alligators, approximately 4ft long or smaller. I assume they are babies, since the juvenile ones are a bit bigger! I don't recall seeing a sign stating their age and it doesn't specify on the map! If we go back this year, I'll have to ask or take note.

They are quite cute little guys, compared to the bigger, scarier looking ones!

Well, a really long weekend for the kids this time..a snow day today! Brooke got in on Saturday at 5:45pm, instead of her scheduled 1:30pm..that train is always delayed! We almost drove to Toronto to get her! :-) 

Sunday, we had my sister and her husband over for dinner and an ice cream cake for Brookie too, since we couldn't take one to Waterloo when we were there for her birthday!

Family Day we took a drive over to Amherst Island to see if we could find any owls, but didn't see anything to shoot!! SIGH.

I'll have another post later this week!

Alligator Adventure: Creepy Crawlies and Slitheries

Welcome Back!

This time I'm highlighting some creepy creatures from Alligator Adventure that not everyone will like..Sorry for posting the snakes! I know I have a couple of readers who don't like the little guys! I don't either, unless they are behind 2 inches of glass, like these ones were! They are in a darkened building which makes them even creepier, if that's possible!

Well, today I'm enjoying a quiet day at home...no errands or anything! Yeah! Probably do some homework, housework and maybe watch a movie. Dinner out tonight with Kevin...Keturah is off to a Valentine's Day Dance.

Brooke comes home tomorrow on the train and it's a long weekend! Family Day on Monday, but better yet, 3 days to sleep in and now having said that, I won't be able to sleep past 6! SIGH

Have a GREAT weekend!

(sorry if the photos do not appear spaced or lined up properly..I was having issues today posting these photos)

Well, this week has been busy already...I moved my Uncle into Friendly Manor yesterday..had to read and complete all his paperwork today and drop it off tomorrow. Doctors appointment for me today and Zeek has one on Thursday... to get his shots updated so he can travel to MB next month!

 Brooke comes home on Saturday for her reading week! Will be nice to have her around (I think) :-D!
