Saturday Critters ~ 185 ~

A few days ago, we took a ride...a very short ride to 
Located right in my home town, this butterfly house is small but beautiful,
and the people who run it are so personable and nice.
We went a few weeks ago, over Memorial Day Weekend and they were closing early.
They were locking up as we got there but I only cried a little.
When we went back for this visit, 
we only had to pay for one of us - how nice was that?
Lauren was our personal guide and we had the entire place to ourselves.

They also have a group of homing pigeons, that they release for special occasions.
Over time, the pigeons always come back.

I love this little, undiscovered treasure.
I sure wish more peeps would find out about it, 
so they could enjoy it like I do!

Many thanks to Lauren and the other sweet girl I met there.
If you are ever in Brick, New Jersey, be sure and look them up!!
