Its a jungle out there...

Monday, June 09, 2014

Soon after I met Jeff he asked me if I knew about the dinosaurs in Mentor. Mentor is halfwayish between where I live now and where I used to live. It was where I did all my shopping before moving, and I'd definitely consider myself pretty darn familiar with the area so for me to not know about big dinosaurs was kind of strange. Truth be told, I didn't believe him. But just like the time he told me the glass studio had a pet chicken they let run around (they do) and that the West Side Market sold fruit I'd never seen before (they do), there are dinosaurs in Mentor. Better than that, there were tons of different animals. It was like a mini version of South of the Border and I'm pretty sure I made it abundantly clear how much I loved that place.
It's crazy how there are still things out there in an area I've lived near my whole life that I still don't know about.

  1. How adorable are those penguins?! And yay to discovering new places! I moved to a new town almost three years ago and am still finding things I didn't know about -like last month I found an animal safari that was only thirty minutes away. It makes it more exciting though, knowing there are always new things yet to be discovered :)

  2. That's so neat! My hometown's got some cool things (castle, ski jump, Al Capone bootlegging history), but I recently found this at a park: http://bit.ly/1lhXIYb. It's an owl carved out of an old tree stump!

  7. This is awesome! I think that is one of the things I love about living in the states, it's such a big piece of land and there are so many tiny towns with wonderful treasures in them!

  10. Great! As always I love your photos! You really know how to take them in the right way. It seems it doesn't matter of what you take a photo, for me they always turn out great (at least the ones you put here).
