Brushtail Possum Has Got to Go

Common Brushtail Possum, Tasmania, AustraliaThis brushtail possum looked like he was having trouble finding a bathroom. We were deep in the woods of Tasmania in Australia. This will be my last post for a week or so as I fly to Alaska tomorrow in search of bears and moose and all manner of other creatures. Be back soon.

    From the heat and humidity of post-Irma Florida, Alaska seems like a dream. Alaska is beautiful beyond words, so I am looking forward to your posts. Also, my husband and I are travelling with 7 couples to South Africa in early October. Any “send off” pics to inspire us for our safari would be most appreciative. We all loved the kissing giraffes! Have a great trip to Alaska!
