They All Asked for You...

We are lucky, here on the Coast of Illinois.
We have the St. Louis Zoo.
Hands down, best free zoo in the world. 
Penguins are fans of paparazzi.
Except this guy.

Polar bears are quite a bit larger than on that ice cream wrapper.

A little great ape PDA.

This guy don't care.

Yes. I am a Sea Lion. What's it too you?
And I can swim upside down.

Rhino's prefer thousand island dressing on their salad.

Hippo's enjoy being mysterious.

This cheetah chooses not to run.

A little mother, daughter bonding amongst the Asian elephants.

These shoots are making me thirsty.

Raja, on the left. Born one year after my daughter. Now 100x her size. At least
Ready for my close up.
Still in the throws of major writing doldrum.
Come back again for more pictures from Autumn, here on the Coast of Illinois.

It has been awhile, I know.
I seem to have gotten caught in the doldrums...the place where there is no wind and you are left to drift aimlessly...
Wow. That sounds dramatic.
Truthfully, I just can't seem to get two words on paper.
I have a lot of them in my head. They just refuse to sail downward into my jittery fingers.
Consequently, I am taking a little hiatus from the Coast.
Doing yoga.
Attempting to meditate.
Which, FYI, is not as easy as it sounds, what with all those words flinging themselves wildly around in my cerebrum.
For the remainder of October, Coast of Illinois will feature some autumnal photos.
And eventually some scenes from an upcoming adventure.
See you soon...
