Calgary is known for their world class zoo (it ranks up there with the one in San Diego!) and my mom has an annual pass, so I got free admission to go check out an attraction that I have been dying to see: the penguins!
I first fell in love with the penguin while being serenaded by the lull of Morgan Freeman's narrative while watching "The March of the Penguins". That love only grew when I got to see the tiny wild ones that live off the south coast of Australia while I was living in Melbourne. Now, finally, we were to be reunited again. Check out my photos of that wonderful day below (it was an iPhone day, so I apologize about the poor quality in advance):

I swear he dove in just so I could snap the picture
Isn't he handsome?
