Yesterday afternoon we went to Tampa for a tour of The Big Cat Rescue. If you are ever in the area, it is a must see.
This was our second visit. Our first visit was about 8 years ago, the last time we were in Florida.
The animals are magnificent and so well cared for.
It was fun seeing this male lion and female white tiger interacting. Here she is washing his face...
and look at the gorgeous coat on this black leopard....
and we thought it cute how this lioness had her paws curled in just like a domestic cat might...
On the way back to our temporary home, just before we got to the Skyway Bridge,
we could see a dense fog rolling in. And that was all we could see for miles! We crossed that bridge and never saw the water on either side, and just barely saw the huge yellow girders in the middle. Other than the taillights of the car in front of us, everything was white. That was a totally surreal experience, for sure!
