On this particular morning, these two beauties were having a good ole sing-song, serenading all of us who walked by or under them. It was such a fabulous way to begin the day.
Nature has a wonderful way of cutting to the chase… you should always find a song in your heart to start your day.
How gorgeous is this beauty, sunny themself near the water’s edge. Having only ever seen hippopotamuses standing in the waters of Africa, this was the first time I’d ever seen a hippopotamus out of water. It was incredible!
The turkey vultures standing nearby a little off-putting however. Are they standing guard or waiting for the meat to bake in the midday sun I wonder?
Hippo is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Where we lived in East Iceland was just a couple of hours away from Borgarfjörður, a tiny village with a bird estuary that provided a fabulous nesting ground for puffins and other bird life. For us it was the puffin that held our full attention!
Over this summer vacation I’m taking trips of another kind. Of a Thursday I’m traveling down memory lane, reminiscing a little about all the traveling we’ve done to various parts of the world as a family!
