Fall

Autumn brings changes.
Nature and life are transformed.
Beauty rests within.

My World in The Wilds

The Wilds is a 10,000 acre wild life conservation center in Southeast Ohio. It is home to rare and endangered species from around the world living in natural, open range habitat.I took the safari tour this Saturday, which lasted about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. It was an extremely bumpy ride, but our tour guide stopped often so we could take pictures.
These wild horses followed our tour bus for almost half of the trip.
The White Rhino is a threatened species. The wide open spaces of The Wilds allows them to live in natural social groups which foster breeding.
This is an endangered One-horned Asian Rhino.
The Scimitar-Horned Onyx has been extinct in the wild since the mid 1970's.In 2007 an Onyx born at The Wilds was part of a group sent to Tunisia for a reintroduction project.
There are fewer than 3000 Grevy's Zebras (endangered) remaining in the wild.
Hunting for their skins and competition for food and water with domestic livestock are contributing factors in the decline in Grevy's Zebras.
Two large humps of fat are one of the distinguishing features of the Bactrian Camel. This fat allows the camel to survive long periods without food or water.
There are less than 1,000 wild Bactrian Camels left.
And this is me taking pictures at the back of our tour bus. What a fun trip this was.

Midweek blues

I've only been home three days and I miss the beach already. My daughter bought a wall hanging stating "If you're lucky enough to live by the beach, you're lucky enough". I guess that sums it up. It was summer when I left the beach, and I came home to autumn.....Midweek Blues is hosted at The Dusty Cellar.

I Is For....

This tiny Ice Cream Shoppe backs up to an ocean inlet. Inside seating offers a view through the back window.Within walking distance of the ice cream shoppe, this oceanfront house is decorated with Ivy.
A front view...looks like the windows are open to catch the ocean breeze.
