I finally finished my spring semester in the first week of May – woot! And after spending a week covering my co-worker’s shifts while he was on vacation (darn you!), I took a couple days to do a little vacationing myself.
Pictures from our trip to Providence, Middletown, and Newport RI =)
Providence, RI: Roger Williams Zoo…
The crane was a bit camera shy.
Red water hog I believe this is one of the male penguins. Male penguins wear bracelets on their right flipper while females wear theirs on their left flipper…or was it the other way around? Each bracelet is colored coded to identify the penguin – there’s a chart by the exhibit that tells you the color of the bracelet and the name of the penguin who’s wearing it. One of them was named Milo and of course my first thought was Milo Ventimiglia… My first thought here was Johnny Depp and Alice in Wonderland. Vulture
The camels were my favorite – their faces are adorable!This bear was so perfectly posed for this picture; so glad I caught it. The white snow leopard refused to come down off its perch so this blurry far away picture was the best I could get.
Emus! My first thought: Jonathon Knight.
Anthony’s Seafood: Middletown, RI…
After setttling in at the hotel in Middletown, RI, we hit Anthony’s Seafood for dinner. The best part? We looked it up online before heading over and apparently Guy Fieri featured this place on his show! The red camaro was here! I was so excited =D
The mansions: Newport, RI…
The next day we hit the mansions in Newport, RI. First up: the Breakers, home to the Vanderbilt family. Anderson Cooper!! I believe this one is The Elms…I could be remembering wrong.
