Saturday was slotted for a visit to the San Diego Zoo. We were all exhausted from Friday, though, so we slept in and didn’t leave until about 10:30 am. Things to know about the San Diego Zoo: it’s (1) massive and (2) very very hilly. Also, it was again very warm and sunny. Fortunately, my family was very patient with my need to sit down and rest…or go to the bathroom…fairly frequently. And we had sunscreen and water again (plus snacks this time!), so it worked out. Oh, and thanks, Kyle, for making me get new tennis shoes before we went. That also helped a lot.
The first thing we did was to ride the Skyfari out to the other end of the zoo. It was super nice and breezy and cool up there, and there was a great view!
This peacock wasn’t in an exhibit, just up a tree. And making quite a racket!
This kangaroo was so sad. He didn’t hop at all, just leaned forward onto his hands, then hunched his tail and rear end up behind him to slide his feet along. We don’t know if he was arthritic or old or just tired, but it looked sad. But who knows; all the others were asleep, so mebbe this is normal?
Oh yeah, we went to In-N-Out for dinner because Colton had heard good things and wanted to try it. That was the end of our day. Mom, Dad, and Colton flew back to Dallas on Sunday, and we drove back up here. The end.
