Not your skinny no fat latte kinda photographer!

My photo
I am a down to earth kinda gal with a camera! I love to shoot anything and everyone, not something you can typically say about your job. I am from a small beach town near Jacksonville, Florida, and wouldn't have had it any other way. The beach is my second home--my retreat and inspiration. I have been called charismatic yet laid back---its a wonderful blend! My style includes bold colors, and fresh black and whites--classic meets contemporary with a twist of that beach lifestyle~

A Day at the Virginia Living Museum

We finally took a break from unpacking! Instead of spending our Sunday knee deep in boxes we decided to take a break and head to the Living Museum. Our new neighbors Clyde and Janet BOTH work there and had been telling us about how great it is. Knowing how much Jake loves animals, and how much we needed some time off, we couldn't think of a better place to visit---and we weren't disappointed.

Upon entering the museum parking lot, its a bit deceiving. It looks rather small from the outside but once you get indoors you realize its 2 floors AND the entire conservatory out back. They have their own animal habitats AND swamp area full of turtles, alligator gar and other great animals. We were able to see wild turkeys, deer, a bobcat, several egrets, and beavers. We were a bit nervous thinking the animals might not be visible due to the heat, but they were out and easily found.

It was a great way to spend a few hours exploring and learning about native animals and plant life to this area! Im sure we'll be heading back again soon!
