T.I.G.E.R.S Preservation Station
Well, it is our last night here in Myrtle Beach and tomorrow is the looooooong drive back to western NY. We have spent a week lolling on the beach (read "burning to a crisp" there), doing all the touristy things and enjoying the time together. They have a huge endangered species wildlife preserve here...they even have an h0nest to goodness liger!! We couldn't afford the tour of the preserve, but they do have a set up in one of the tourist areas where from 5-9 pm you can see different types of tiger cubs and monkeys and have your picture taken with them. How could we resist that??? So, we spent our last night here with a tiger cub on our laps and a gibbon hugging us! The profits from the pics go to the animals at the preserve. Look them up....it is an amazing group!! Here is our picture. Hub, Tom, is in the back, then Patrick-17, Hannah-15, Joe-16 and me.
