2011 - Valentine's Day At the Museum
by J. R. Beatty
As is my habit, I photographed many of the scenes, animals, and historical displays for my enjoyment. Included here are just a few photos captured at the museum to “wet your photographer’s appetite”.

For example, there is a live (but sleepy) owl exhibit. I accidentally captured a "photo-bombed" photo of the "Owl Winks & 'Ghost of Photographer Present' Shutters". Sometimes you just get lucky, I guess!
Some Fifty Years later, I hear we may "Yearn to Return to the Moon - Soon"!
With some good luck you might even be able to capture, as I did that day, the woolly sheep, sheepishly sticking his tongue out at you!
A young child's pure, sweet love is like God's Perfect Love for EACH and ALL of us. This continually amazes and convicts!
The outdoor trails to the exhibits are reasonable in length with appropriately sloped wooden walkways for powered mobility chairs with fully charged batteries. Having a strong person along to provide a helping-up-the-hill-push for the unpowered wheel chair or a supporting arm for the longer walks is suggested.
The North Carolina Museum of Life and Science is a varied and positively entertaining educational experience. This museum is essentially made for children and their parents and their grandparents to enjoy learning together. There is something for every age. Three generations of my family were there - seeing, exploring, and experiencing ALL that had been prepared for us.
Come and bring along your own parents, children, grandchildren, your special friends, AND your favorite camera. Lighting varies from bright outdoor sunlight to dim indoor lamp-lit displays.
The museum exhibits some special creations by God Himself and other special creations by His Highest Creation - mankind.
You and yours will enjoy these visual and tactile learning experiences!
