Come on Safari

More wildlife from our recent Safari.
Some I don't know, they all had identification signs but often I did not see them.
The animals are beautiful and look to be well cared for.
They have a large area of both open space and wooded areas for them to live and roam.




The elephants were called by name by their trainer, they responded quickly to being fed.













Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul has not been awakened!

Six Flags - Safari

On Thursday, we took a drive to Six Flags - Great Adventure to enjoy the 
Drive thru Safari.
In our own, private, safari vehicle = our car, we experienced the great outdoors at our own pace.
It was wonderful...
We saw a lot of babies and young animals, perhaps the animals way of "keeping busy" during quarantine.

Let's start off with the baby Emu...




The hubs had to count quick...these are busy little birds,
16 was the assumed total.




Buffalo - Bigger Horns

Bison- Small Horns

Longhorn Steer


The young steer was still nursing!



And I wish I had photographed all of the signs...



I only saw two young giraffe, and they were pretty big!


Of course we saw a lot more animals, these are the ones with babies or young-ins.

"Animals have hearts that feel, eyes that see, and families to care for, just like you and me"

Saturday Critters ~ 391 ~

 During our visit to Lake of the Lilies on Tuesday, 
there were a few newbies in the water.


Two more swans have appeared for a total of only four.
Last year there were so many here, I hope at least some of those will return.



The Egrets have returned and were very busy fishing.
The picture above was his first catch...


this was the second catch.
If you look closely, you can see the fish in it's mouth.

The fisherman are back, we saw four.

And new to the lake, these Canadian Geese babies.






I sure hope they grow in to these feet, I've never noticed how big their feet were!

The Coastal Queen

 We were sitting at the Point Pleasant Inlet Tuesday having donuts.
It was a beautiful morning,
the sun was out and there was a cool breeze.
A boat came into the inlet heading toward the ocean.
It was still a bit in the distance but I knew I had never seen this boat before.

I was so excited to jump up and get some pictures.


Look at this beautiful boat...


So if you know me, you know I talk to everyone.
If you don't know me, I talk to everyone!
There was a woman there also taking pictures and I asked her if she had ever seen the boat.
She smiled and said "I happen to know all about this boat"!
She said the boat was built in the 1920's, 
and restored by a man here at the Jersey Shore who restores old boats.
It is now complete and the boat is headed to Newport, Rhode Island where the owner lives.


Coastal Queen, Jamestown
I was so glad I took this picture.
When I did, I could not read what it said, 
but it was crystal clear when I loaded the memory card and viewed the picture.

What a thrill, this boat was so beautiful!
