About Me

My Photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Saturday Photo Hunters - Theme: HEAVY

I had to go through my photo albums to see if I could find something appropriate for this week's theme. I finally found the following photo of a family of elephants that I took years ago at the San Diego Animal Park.

Leslie, this is a great photo for the theme. I was absolutely stumped for quite a while.

Great heavy beasts. I just read a delightful book called "Water for Elephants". Circus story with a wonderful elephant who is a composite of several real circus elephants.

Hi Leslie,
Thanks for stopping by! Glad you found me through Welshcakes--I love her wit and writing style. It never seems to be a dull moment in her little corner of Italy.

I scrolled down a bit and saw your post on the Cinque Terre--lovely place isn't it? It's been awhile since we've gone back but boy do I miss the food!

I went through the San Diego Zoo many years ago when I was 18 and in Navy boot camp.

Don't recall much about it though, but I didn't want to go to the sleaze joints with the others.

I used to be bashful and quite. LOL

Wow all those together are heavy !!

Andrée said...

They look busy and happy. I keep reading so much bad about elephants in zoos that I worry about them. But your elephants here look engaged in life. My Photo Hunt — Heavy is here. Thank you.
