GRAND CANYON!!!!

I’m back, everyone! I hope you’re having a great spring break so far! I had SUCH and amazing time at the Grand Canyon. Absolutely breathtaking. The pictures don’t do it justice. BEAUTY!!!

Okay. I know what you’re thinking-HOW THE #$^& DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH THE GRAND CANYON? Well, we saw this on the drive to the Grand Canyon by a sketchy burrito place. Only in Arizona…

The first time I saw the Grand Canyon, I literally froze in place, I was so astonished!

Florida! (Again)

Hi again, everyone! Happy 2017!

I have just returned from my annual family sojourn in Florida, and it was very fun. I have LOTS of pictures to show you!

Yeah, that’s right…the soul-sucking doll is back. And this time, she was right…behind…my air mattress…

My grandma’s neighbors own cows, and they often come close to her property. I spent some time feeding them Spanish moss and grapefruit on the first day. MOO!

Coquina Beach!

This is literally the saddest manatee ever. I would hardly be able that it was a manatee if it didn’t say “manatee” right next to it. Nice job…

Back at the Dalí! There was a Frida Kahlo exhibit this time, and this was from it. This is “The Chick”, which is now probably my favorite Kahlo.

“The Hallucinogenic Toreador”, my favorite Dalí painting.

IMG_3730.jpg

Another one of my favorites, “The Ghost of Vermeer of Delft which can also be used as a Table”. Man, what a great name. Where can I get one of these?

I mustache you a question…but I’ll shave it for later.

Melting Clock bench selfie!

ARGH…THE PUNS!!!! Okay, maybe I’m being a bit of a hypocrite, but y’know.

So, I had a great time in Florida! I’ll be back on Tuesday with a book review! Ciao for now!

Aw Yeah Alaska!

As I mentioned in my last BRT, I went to AK for about eight days. I just got back here today, and I’m exhausted. But Alaska was so awesome! Here are some pictures from my camera.

IMG_0035.jpg

This moose was in a small lake near our cabin in Talkeetna. We didn’t get this close- just the work of the zoom lense on the camera. Ha.

IMG_0060.jpg

Some sort of rodent at Denali National Park. We never identified it. But hey, it’s still cute, right?

The most dangerous creature in Alaska…Paco the chihuahua.

We went on a plane on Tuesday over Denali. This was taken shortly after the plane took off.IMG_0104.jpg

This was also from the plane. Awesome glacier!

 

The next four pics are from the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center, which I LOVED.

After Talkeetna, we stayed in Seward.IMG_0159.jpg

This eagle, along with three others, lived right near our cabin. It was really cool! We found three of their feathers, and in the evening we would often hear them screeching.

These last pics are from when we took an 8-hour boat tour through the Kenai Fjords. Definetly my favorite part of the trip!

The very first animal we saw- a sea otter!

IMG_0185.jpg

A colony of Steller’s Sea Lions

IMG_0207.jpg

We saw a pod of orcas!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEE! Anyway, this picture is an adult with a baby. One of the orcas also got really close to our boat! I squealed like a teenage girl at a pop concert when I saw them. Literally.

Harbor seals on the ice

IMG_0253.jpg

Northwestern (or Northwest. I forget) Glacier. This was our final destination before turning around. You might be able to see a harbor seal in the middle of this picture!

IMG_0299.jpg

“Amazing” and “awesome” just don’t do justice to this. This was the second or third Humpback whale we saw, but man, she was showing OFF. As well as the breaching, she showed her fluke, blew from her blowhole, and waved her flippers. Legit whale aerobics.

 

As you can see, this was such a fun and memorable trip. I hope you guys are having a great summer! Plus- I read some good books in AK, so my next BRT will be great. Bye!

P.S.- Happy early Fourth of July! 🇺🇸

Florida!!!

Over the last portion of winter break, I visited Florida with my family. I just wanted to share a couple of  pictures…

A small frog rescued from Grandma’s pool! SOOO CUUUUTTE 🐸

IMG_0169.jpg

I went to the SALVADOR DALI MUSEUM! This is one of his masterworks-I think it was called “Columbus Discovering America” or something like that. Pretty cool.

IMG_0239.jpg

The beach! We almost couldn’t go because of the weather, but the rain stopped, so we could go! I am the one with the pink cover-up (under the green towel). I ended up catching 58 little coquinas (tiny shelled invertebrates that burrow in the sand)!

IMG_0213.jpg

Disturbing lamp in our bedroom…RUN! IT’S A VAMPIRE!

IMG_0209.jpg

Even SCARIER porcelain doll (also in our room) sucking the soul of The Cat in the Hat. AAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Random monkey skull at Tito and Tita’s house. Guuuhh…

Well…goodbye. I hope you…er…”like” this post. The doll is going to murder you in your sleep…JUST KIDDING
