The penultimate stop on our fall mini-zoocation is an annual favorite – the Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon MA. Southwick’s is always fun and I encourage you to visit. They are closed for the season now (except for several weekends). You can check out their website for dates. My zoocation sidekick and good friend Mary Schwalm has created another desktop calendar for 2019. I have already ordered mine and got them in the mail the other day. Check them out here. A perfect stocking stuffer.

I took my annual trip north to New England to visit good friends last week. We laughed, had great food, enjoyed the autumnal leaves and of course, visited a zoo or two. Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon MA is always on our list and does not disappoint. We will be back.

My annual fall trip to see good friends in New England always includes a visit to Southwick’s Zoo . The autumn leaves, the chilly air and their wonderful collection made for a memorable visit.
Please visit the Binky Foundation’s site today to see the thoughtful and sweet Remembrance for my dear Benny the dog.  Thank you to those that contributed to the site in his memory. Your generosity and  kindness in remembering him with a donation to his (and my)
favorite animal foundation  warmed my heart. He was a very good boy.  SOUTHWICKS2015

Grivet Monkey -SouthwicksMy yearly autumn pilgrimage to visit with good friends in New England is never complete without a visit to the always enjoyable and growing,  Southwick’s Zoo.  Fall is the most beautiful time of year to visit.  The zoo closes for the season at the end of October and reopens in the spring.  We will be back.SOUTHWICKS2014

CHIMPANZEERounding out a leaf-tastic fun visit to New England with my zoo-cation buddy, Mary Schwalm, was a visit to the Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon MA.  This autumn visit proved to be the best one ever.  An abundance of color combined with having the zoo almost all to ourselves made for a fine mini-zoocation.

An annual rite of summer’s passage includes a visit to good friends in Massachusetts and a return visit to the Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA.  I call it our mini-zoocation. Southwick’s always has something new.  This visit included two adorable five month old playful warthogs, a young Ankole calf (aka Watusi), baby pot-bellied pigs and much more. If you subscribe to my weekly photos (and get them in your in-box) you are probably not able to view my videos from your inbox image.  Just scroll up and click on the Blue link (which is the name of today’s send) and it will take you back to my ‘While at the Zoo’ website where you can watch today’s video selection – the baby warthogs playing. Enjoy the fun.

As Hurricane Irene blasts the NYC area and we are advised to stay indoors I flash back to last weekend’s quick trip to New England to visit friends.  The goal was whale watching but the whales were out of range so we easily opted for visits to three zoos in two days.  Here is the first of those visits (more later today). If you did not see my pre-hurricane Irene posts from yesterday, are homebound and looking for some visual entertainment check out this post: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/deconstructing-casa-lobo/  and this one: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/waiting/
