Zoo plus plus

Lindsin brought us a triple header tonight: walk, Woodland Park Zoo, and Greenlake. 

The Zoo was a real treat this evening, empty and cool. We pulled a Tolle classic, the Zoo Coup. We arrived at 5:59pm, knowing that the zoo closes at 6pm. The doors and the indoor exhibits close at that time, however you’re able to stay on the grounds for an hour after closing. With the beautiful warm evening and the soft smokey peach sunset we felt like we were on safari. We had a great moseying walk. 

We aimed for the baby giraffe born June 20th, but alas, she was in the barn. Even so, the two adults in the yard put on quite a scene and won best animal for the visit. Lake was enthralled with the giraffes. It was the first time he really comprehended a live giraffe and his brain was clearly working in high drive!

Finally it was time to go. At Greenlake we met up with our German friends to say a quick hello!

And then Lake and I arrived home in the dark. A full day, a packed evening, a perfect day… I’m glad I spent it with you!
