“Pic of the Week”. March 29, 2013. Elephants bathing in the Maha Oya River, Pinnawala, Sri Lanka

2013-013-March 29

I love watching elephants — who doesn’t?  To me they’re endlessly entertaining!  Their massive size, their cute babies, their magical gentle trunks and soulful eyes (that seem to see and understand all)…..I think they’re great!  A child and its grandparent can equally enjoy them.

There’s no better time to watch elephants than when they’re bathing.  Every day at the Elephant Orphanage in Pinnawala, the elephants are taken to the nearby river to bathe for a few hours.  Their pleasure at being in the water is self-evident.  At Pinnawala, you won’t see just one or two, but dozens of elephants.  To read more about the Elephant Orphanage, please click here.
