When it's Chilly on Valentine's Day... Walk like Penguins in Love!

 

walk like penguins in loveWe're having sub-zero temperatures here and  I do home inspections in Reading, PA whether it's snowing out or 100 degrees.  and I was remembering what they say when it'swhen it's chilly on valentine's day icy out- walk like a Penguin! 

 

This just means to keep your center of gravity over your front leg when you are walking on ice.

 

 

when it's chilly on Valentine's DayMy wife and I were just in South Africa last month and we visited Boulder Beach where they have wild penguins everywhere.  Now, these are not the cold weather penguins as you can see from the beach and our summer clothes! 

 

We got some great photos while we were there. 

 

 

What better, more appropriate photo for an icy Valentine's Day then this photo we caught of two lovebirds... or should I say "love-walk like penguins in lovepenguins!"

 

 

When it's Chilly  on Valentine's Day... Walk like Penguins in Love (sure beats breaking your leg and walking around in a cast!)

I just can't seem to get that penguin walking thing down! We've hardly had a winter here and there is no ice anywhere. Crazy year.

That is a really cute picture.  I also saw the penquins in South Africa. What a wonderful trip.

I am not sure how to walk like a penguin, but if it's frozen and icy, you can bet I will carefully plant one foot carefully before taking another step. I once tried to jump a slippery icky sludge on the sidewalk, misjudged and did not land gracefully. From now on, I will be v-e-r-y careful, you can bet! Cute post.

Hi Kat,

It has been quite a mild winter except for that round of storms we had in early to mid February.  We might be OK until Spring!

Hi David. Ecuador is amazing too. I was in Kenya in November and that was very very special too.
