Washington



The first time I ever saw a Panda was at the Tiergarten Schönbrunn in Vienna, Austria...
...he was passed out upside down.


The next time was at the Toronto Zoo...
...he was passed out on a rock.


In Washington we visited the Smithsonian zoo and saw the Panda...
...who was passed out over a rock.


Wow, Panda's are lazy.


Pictures from Washington are now up in the galleries

Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory


Sometimes I don't have to travel to actually put the camera to use.
Last week we checked out the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory, since we were already up that way to buy honey from our favourite local dealer.
Its smaller than Niagara but the butterflies were quite diverse, pretty, and healthy looking.
Pics have been added to the butterflies gallery


PS - Washington pics still to come.

Drumheller


Drumheller is home to the Royal Tyrrell Museum and to the World's Largest Dinosaur.
We visited both and had a great time.
The museum was amazing and had an overwhelming abundance of dinosaur fossils and displays.
The dinosaur was large.


Pictures from Drumheller are now up in the galleries
And with that I have completed the Alberta trip and added its gallery to the travel page.


Up next: Washington.

Canton, Ohio


A couple weeks back I had some meetings down in Ohio.
I managed to fly in early enough that I was able to sneak out to Canton to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
They had some pretty cool and interesting exhibits but the jewel was the Hall of Busts.
303 busts - one of each Hall of Famer.
The awesome part was that we happened to visit the week after the 2016 induction ceremony, so the new inducties busts were already on display, including Kevin Greene, one of my all time favourites.


Pictures (mostly busts) from Canton are now up in the galleries
