O BennyThe Dallas World Aquarium is an AZA facility is located in downtown Dallas, Texas. My favorite part of this terrific facility was the seven-story Orinoco Secrets of the River exhibit that highlights the unique bio-diversity of the South American rainforest ecosystem. The culture of the Maya also comes to life in an eight-story Mundo Maya exhibit. Plants and animals prevalent in Mayan folklore are featured in this immersion experience. The highlight is a 400,000-gallon walk-through Cenote exhibit filled with sharks, rays and sea turtles of the Yucatan Peninsula. Black-footed penguins and Shoebill storks also greet us year round in their outdoor South Africa exhibit. If you ever find yourself in Dallas (and I never thought I would) this is a must see stop.  Also, for those that clamor for a Benny photo – check him out (above) in his St Patrick’s formal wear.

Hi Judy, We’ve not been in touch for a long while, but gather from your wonderful photos that all is well and you continue to enjoy life. Just wanted to say “hi” and to tell you once again how much we appreciate your zoo photos. Have you ceased doing film reviews? We also very much enjoyed those and miss them. Happy St. Patty’s Day to Benny and all best to the three of you, Carol and Mario

Good to hear from you again and glad you like my photos. I have stopped reviewing films. There just isn’t enough time to do all of the things that I like to do. So – my move hiatus continues.
