Elephant Sanctuary

Random adventure day: the elephant sanctuary! Bella: " Why is the elephant sanctuary so far away from town?" Well, let's think. . .

We were meeting grandparents, uncle, aunt, and cousins, who got lost on the way. *We* didn't get lost, owing no doubt to the brand-new GPS in Giles' pocket! So we had some time to wait, and allowed Daisy to take the (stationary) wheel.

Mother and baby, always a popular theme with our own baby . . . so cute! Of course Daisy was saying, "He's tiny. He's this tiny. I want to hold him in my hand, etc." I wanted to myself.

A greenhouse on the campus held a healthy crop of succulents wintering over.

Cold and windy as it was, we enjoyed warming up and inspecting the cactuses for a few minutes.

But the elephants were best.

What a fun outing!

Greenhouses in winter are especially lovely. And, have you noticed, the filtered light is perfect for beautiful photographs?!

As an aside, prepared your recipe of potato-leek soup for our family to eat of Christmas Eve evening upon arriving home from the candlelight service. Paired with Swedish meatballs, crusy French bread, and a crisp salad it was the perfect, and delicious, dinner to eat on a cold and festive night. Thank you for sharing it.
