Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion – “This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images.”
The kids and I took a day trip to The Parks at Chehaw in Albany, Georgia and spent a day in the Wild Animal Park. It was nearing lunch time when we reached the middle. It was left (bison), right (cheetah), or straight (food), and since the cafe wasn’t open yet, we elected for none-of-the-above and took the safari ride.
The tractor pulled out, our canopied trailer following, bouncing. Our tour guide covered the rules – standard stay seated, keep your arms and legs in at all times, don’t pet the animals. We crept through the woods. A deer family pranced by. We went through a gate, drove up a path, and pulled into the clearing where the animals were grazing. We stopped to observe, and then a zebra walked by.
The Park was four-plus hours of outdoor, active activity with plenty to see, do, hear, and learn. We saw swamps and alligators. We saw a black rhino and lots of skinks. There was a camel and kangaroos, an ostrich couple and a monkey family. We fed donkeys and goats and pigs. We crawled through a meerkat maze. We took a train ride. We were in motion from arrival to departure. It was wonderful.
