Day 2589 – When A Lama Is Your Spirit Animal – Or – Review Of Virginia Safari Park

Last summer, we visited the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, Virginia. It’s funny, whenever I’m struggling to think of what to blog about, I almost always stop at the pictures from the park. Specifically these photos.

I just love the colors and how it shows how much fun we had. Being able to feed the birds was such a great additional interactive thing.

So what is a drive-thru safari? Well, it’s pretty much what you’d think of if you went on an African safari, driving past wildlife in their environment….but you drive your OWN car through! We got to see so many different types of animals on our trip through. We got two buckets of feed and thanks to a friend’s recommendation, we held onto the buckets TIGHT! If you don’t, you’ll lose it. I did really well until near the end. Yep, they took it right out of my hands.

This is a great place to take kids of all ages, but make sure you keep the windows up if your kids get scared or don’t understand that animals can bite. I would say, near the end, we opted to keep our windows up most of the time because the animals got a little greedy.

The price is about $20 per person but there is SO much included with that. Not only do you have 180 acres of drive-thru wildlife to see, there is a petting zoo and a whole host of animals in cages to see. Another bonus is you can go through as many times as you want that day.

And as I mentioned, this lama is my spirit animal. Seriously, it’s like he stole my face.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
