 Last Saturday had a few firsts for me. It was the first time I left NYC in 14 months. It was the first time I was in a car in 14 months. It was the first time I ate inside a restaurant in 14 months. That may not sound exciting to you but for me…it was a grand treat. We ventured to West Orange NJ to visit the Turtleback Zoo. We had not been to the zoo since 2014 and it has changed quite a bit. In 2016 they added a three acre African Safari and recently added a bald eagle exhibit. We had a great day out and I look forward to more adventures in the future.

bear boysWe visited Essex County NJ’s Turtleback Zoo this week.  I have not been here in a long time and it sure has grown in size and scope.  The collection is terrific and we adored the amazing komodo dragon.  They are building a new sea lion exhibit that should be opening by summer.  A return visit is in order.

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.  This desert rain frog (not at the Turtleback Zoo) is arguably the cutest thing I ever saw (and heard).  Enjoy this adorable creature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBkWhkAZ9ds
