Cats . . . The Big Ones! (And a few other animals, too)

 

Course requirements dictated that I attend a week-long colloquial in Arlington, Virginia, USA, this week. Hundreds of us, all grad students working (or hoping to work) in the mental health field converged on the city just across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, to spend six intense days of study, learning and experiencing in a classroom setting. The day before classes were scheduled to begin, a friend and I took part of a day to venture into the capital district to visit the National Zoo. As you will see in the following photos, I was captivated by the big cats! Enjoy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refreshing

A couple of years ago my daughter and grandson came for a visit.  We spent a day at the National Zoo, probably the hottest day of the year.  Jacob, my grandson, “refreshed” himself by playing in the water spray the zoo provides for hot visitors.  Kids and adults alike love the sprays!  Enjoy!
