Does my bottom look big in this…..? Model Shoot at San Diego Zoo

DSC_0754

Happy Monday…. sorry I could not resist, on our day at San Diego Zoo I desperately tried to get a shot of the Zebras, but alas in the true mantra of never work with children or animals, they were far more interested in their morning snack that me trying to be David Attenborough.  But not to be deterred I think I got a good pic of their bottoms!!!….. No I will never grow up it seems!

Fortunately a few of the other animals at the Zoo were a little more forthcoming!

Eddie the Elephant did their hair specially for me, the straw look… The meerkat misplaced her bikini for the shoot so maintained a little modesty.

It all got a bit much for Percy Polar bear…. but I was not going to argue with him if you know what I mean!

La Jolla – A relaxing start, dispelling myths and meeting new friends

IMG_0608

One of the first stops on the journey was a quaint and beautiful little town in San Diego called La Jolla (pronounced La Hoya) yes I pronounced it like it was a little Jolly! – Apologies for all those that I offended! Although I did manage to get my own back when I was asked to throw another shrimp on the BBQ….. Much to my friends dismay I had to dispel the myth that Aussies call prawns “shrimps”….. Mr Paul Hogan was scripted purely for the American market I am afraid….. anyway I digress.

For those of you who love a quaint little town ,with an abundance of wild life then this is a must stop for you, where you are guaranteed to bump in to the odd seal lapping up the afternoon sun on the beach or peruse around The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.

I am not really a travel writer, but love to take pictures so forgive me if I just stop with the words and give you the pictures!

Introducing my new friend Sammy!
