White Tiger at Out of Africa Wildlife Park

One of the tigers at Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Cottonwood, Arizona. 

You may think you don't want to go to Las Vegas, but there are a lot of things within driving distance of Vegas that will fascinate you.  Out of Africa is one of them.

Out of Africa Wildlife Park, Arizona

We were recently in Arizona and Los Vegas.  We drove to this wildlife park near Phoenix to see tigers and this little bear play in the pool with their keepers.  This park, Out of Africa, is a real delight.  I went there years ago, and we made a special trip to go back and see how the park and the animals were doing.  There are big cats that swim in the pool as well.  If you're near Phoenix, this is a must see.

Dog starring in film in Rome

I know it's not a cat, but it's a dog starring in a  movie being made in Rome.  We came across them filming when we were walking around.

The dog clearly knew he was the center of attention and there were several "cuts" yelled because he wasn't doing something he was supposed to be doing.  He couldn't have cared less.  You know how these stars are.  The director yelled "cut" once and somebody with a jacket saying "M.C. Star" came in and groomed him.


Well, we're not in St. Simons right now, but in Venice, Italy.  But, we just thought some of the cool cats might like to know what's going on in Italy.

Something I read preparing for the trip said that you never forget the first time you see Venice  and i think they're right.  There's just no city in the world like it. 

There are a lot of tourists here, but nothing like it would be in the summer.  I'm glad we came this time of year.

The gondola rides are expensive now and there is a kind of large water taxi that most people use, but it's just so lovely to see these guys at work.
