I found a cool writer's blog "Mama's Losin' It" that gives me some writing prompts. Today's: Open your picture folders...find a random "February" picture from a past year and tell a story.
Two years ago this week, we were in sunny Honolulu. We waited until the day of our departure to visit the zoo. Our flight left late that evening so we left what bags we had with the hotel and walked to the zoo.
I had been to the Honolulu zoo when I was 14 to visit my aunt and uncle while they were stationed there. I remember sunburning and seeing a cockroach for the very first time in my life. I'm pretty sure it was then that I first visited that zoo. It was very rustic and sad. They have made a lot of improvements. However, I can never bear to visit the elephants at any zoo. I always go away feeling deeply saddened, so I stayed away from that exhibit.
Last year we were in sunny Phoenix but I don't have access to those photos right now. If I did, you'd be seeing a beautiful saguaro cactus instead of a giraffe's head!
Where have you been in Februaries past?
