The lead artwork in yesterday's post here,
was, in my opinion ... overworked!
I think I went roaring past "done", then posted it anyway.
So today's, above, is maybe the other extreme?
Could use some refinement, but to make amends, I'm done.
Which do you prefer?
Tuesday was the long awaited play date with Marie!
We had scheduled & rescheduled, but today is the day.
75 degrees, Santa Ana, CA.
Just 6 miles from my front door ...
isn't that always the case?
You have nearby treasures that you take for granted?
I haven't been to Disneyland in decades,
though I can seen their fireworks nightly.
The Santa Ana Zoo at Prentice Park in Santa Ana, California
is small, 20-acre zoo focusing on the animals
and plants of Central and South America.
An unusual request was made in 1952 by Joseph Prentice,
the founder of the Santa Ana Zoo at Prentice Park.
In order for the Zoo to exist, Mr. Prentice required that
there be 50 monkeys on the grounds at all times.
This charming Zoo features
over 80 species of animals,
including the world's
the Pygmy Marmoset.
I had trouble photographing
the 50+ monkeys
due to light & the cages.
Dromedary & camels, oh my!
This Zoo is a place to play,
a place to learn
& a place to spend time with friends & family.
Marie and I agree.
