This week, Nancy Merrill is asking us to look for groups of three for her Photo A Week Challenge. Having found plenty of twos for Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge, I realized that coming up with threes was not going to be quite so easy.
Three sea lions at the zoo. This picture was taken some years ago and I’m having a hard time remembering where but I think it may have been at the zoo in Indianapolis.
Three beautiful blooms at the Orchid Festival in the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Three naked ladies, part of a fantastic music machine at The House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
Three pelicans preening on the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa.
Three jockeys entering the enclosure before a big race at Arlington Park, Illinois.
Three koi swimming in a pool at Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois.

The current subject for Nancy Merrill’s A Photo A Week Challenge is Boats and Ships. My earliest recollection of boats comes from when I was a small child and we went on a sightseeing trip down the river Thames in London. Since then my water-going experiences have been limited to a ferry-crossing to Mackinac Island, the occasional trip down the Chicago river, a couple of outings with the Des Plaines Yacht Club on Lake Opeka, and one or two other sightseeing excursions on rivers and lakes. I’ve never been on an ocean liner or cruise ship so I don’t know whether sea sickness would be a problem and since I’m never likely to find out, it will forever remain a question unanswered.
