Meeting Penelope

penelope2eeOne of the ways my family connects is through animals.  We all are amazed by them and the ways that they communicate with each other and with us.  We walk our dog and play with our cats, frequently visit a cat shelter to help socialize the cats, view swans and ducks on the lakes, listen to barred and great horned owls at night, as well as the occasional howl of coyotes, marvel as eagles soar and swoop over our kayaks, and visit the wildlife rehabilitation facilities and zoos.

Today we were charmed by Penelope, a month-old reticulated giraffe at Como Zoo.  For a moment, she stared at us, and we smiled in wonder and awe.
