Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Went last night to the Summer Wind Farms Sanctuary. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I really wasn’t sure I’d rather be there on a rainy night than in front of the TV watching the Red Wings become the Western Conference Champions once again. I’m very glad I went, but I’m very upset I didn’t bring my camera. My real camera, that is. I took some surprisingly better-than-normal pics with my BlackBerry, but the quality is nowhere near what I could have had.

(edit: the pics link above, which I e-mailed to myself from Facebook, doesn’t seem to work. Try this one instead.)

So if you’re in SouthEast Michigan and have the chance to go here, do so! It’s so much better than the zoo. Especially if you love the big cats, like I do. Here they were actually active (well, the cool rainy weather helped) and close enough to get a very good look at, and you have a guide who will tell you about each animal and answer questions. We even had the opportunity to pet some animals (horses, cows, goats, a snake, and a tarantula).

Oh, and I watched the Wings on my DVR when I got home. No surprise, we won, and now it’s on to the Penguins rematch for our second straight Stanley Cup. 🙂
