It’s snowing and I’m sitting here thinking about sunshine, warm breezes, beaches, and coconut oil. I can’t help it. I’m not a fan of the winter months. My oil bill could choke a horse, and I’m still just as cold inside as I am outside. ( can you say “old drafty house?” )
My thoughts turn to summer and a fun trip to the zoo with my beautiful grandkids that I only see once or twice a year. UGH!
So for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, I decided to showcase a few Cape May NJ zoo animals and any other critters I’ve come by along the way.
Enjoy and have a super happy new year. Be safe!
And not to forget family and friends

i love your selection and enjoyed the show! i could never get warm in winter months either. a long hot bath always helped more than anyhting!
may the winter not be too brutal on you!
Long hot bath. Long hot summer. I’ll take them both! I’ll weather the weather til the summer comes again. 🙂 be talkin’ to ya, z. Gem
Loving the llama, Gem. It’s a toss up who’s got the longest face in this weather- me or the husband! Isn’t blogging a wonderful distraction? Happy New Year!
I’ll pit your hubby against mine any day. haha. Jeff wears his summer cut-offs til his legs start threatening frost bite! He is a die hard sunshine guy. Blog on, Jo, and have a wonderful new year.
Great blog…some of our favorite memories are visits to the zoo with our grandchildren..when you’ve had your fill of the winter cold , come join us in Ecuador ..we have the sunshine, warm breezes, beaches and coconuts.. prospero anos y felicidad.
Don’t ask me twice, lol. I am so ready to throw my airplane fears to the wind and head on out to Ecuador. Between you both and z, I am so wanting to see that beautiful place. Todo bien. ;-). I will make it through the harsh winter by reading your blog. :-). Prospero anos, mi amigos. (is that right?) :-p
perfecto… our door is always open amiga .. take care, stay warm
Beautiful post Gemma ,Happy New Year my friend 🙂
Thanks for always stopping by. Have a safe and happy new year, Jake. 🙂
Love all the animals. Have a great New Year, Gemma.
Thanks, Anne. You too. Much success with your work this year. G
Snowing here too, and I’m missing the Florida warmth. Yes, it’s hard not seeing the grandkids more often, but we make the most of it, when we do. 🙂 Love your photos of Rocky, and that looks like one very curious giraffe. Happy New Year, Gemma. xx
Have fun, be well, be seeing you . Happy New Year, Sylvia. ~ G
So fun and summery! Hmmmm. Let me see…. Who is my favorite…..? Ha! Cupcake in her tutu! And also Marshall and Rocky with the Nylabone. Not the giant bug. *shiver*
Dang! That is one cool bug! And that tutu is a riot! #doggydyfs haha!
Good job! I am glad I opened the pictures larger as I had first thought the snowy owl in the first picture was a snowman! Happy New Year to you and your family!
It DOES look like a snowman! Lol
Ring in the New Year with sunshine and a smile, John and Mary. 🙂
Oh my gosh! The snowy owl is gorgeous. I love zoos. And your dog’s little skirt. Awe! These are all precious. Love.
The dog belongs to a friend, but thanks, Angelia. Her name is Cupcake. Sweet :-).
Zoos are great for relaxing, picture taking, connecting with nature. I LOVE them.

I feel you on the drafty old house hearted with oil (might as well be gold!). I hate winter as much! But your little dog it tutu cute! 😉
The dog is my friend’s, but yes, she is very cute, thanks.
Oil? Gold? Yes! Same thing. Blah! 😦
Happy New Year.
Blah indeed! lol Happy New Year to you!
Your zoo looks like a real nice one. There were so many cool and wonderful photos. Thanks for participating! Happy New Year!
We use to go to the Philadelphia Zoo. Nice but, cha-ching $$$$$
We discovered this zoo this summer. Just as fun and free (donation). No brainer. 🙂
Happy, healthier new year.
I like the photos, my favorite theme. Happy New Year, Gemma!
Just not as much snow 😉
Happy 2013 to you, Bente!
You did a terrific job… Quite a lot of animals you captured. 😉
And a fun day, to boot. 🙂
A little dogg in a tutu…I am speechless Gemma
Look up a few comments and you’ll see her. Her name is cupcake. She’s my friend’s dog and she has an entire wardrobe. She needs one. She goes to the library to read with the kids (of course she doesn’t actually read. She just sits there, looks cute and let’s them pet her.) and she visits the VA Hospital for more petting. Therapy dog. So so cute and busy.
