I Went to the Zoo!

May 26, 2015  •  2 Comments

So over this glorious Memorial Day weekend, I went to Seattle, which is one of my favorite cities, trumped only by Boston. I did lots of fun things and ate lots of good food (shoutout to Home Grown and WhichWich!). My boyfriend, Joseph, and I wandered Pike's Place, taking in the sights and smells, buying more succulents (like I need more), and taking as many samples from the farmer's market as we could. I also got to go to the Woodland Park Zoo, which, if you have never been before, I highly recommend. 

The zoo is just outside of the University district, nestled in a quiet community. The zoo is quite big, unexpectedly big. Joseph and I arrived later in the day, around 3:30 or so, which left us with about two and a half hours to race through the zoo. Thankfully, it was a cool, overcast day so the animals weren't all hiding from the sun. Yay! 

So the leopard was reclining right next to the window, but I couldn't get a good picture because of the congestion of observers. It was so annoying. I never got a good photo of him. I don't remember what type of bird this was, but I think it was a kestrel. Regardless, it was so pretty.  Giraffes are my favorite animals to see at the zoo. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see them in their display habitats. They had been put away for the night by the time I got around to their section of the zoo :( It was so disappointing. Thankfully, I had a good zoom lens so I was able to get some shots, but this one of the giraffe's tongue was really the only one I liked.  This peacock! Oh man. It was hilarious. As you can see, the peacock is not super happy with this crow. Someone spilled crackers or trail mix or something on the ground and the peacock was eating it. This crow came by and was stealing the peacock's treats. The peacock had his feathers out and rattling, trying to frighten the crow off. Of course, the crow didn't care and would grab a mouthful, fly away, and come back. The peacock didn't even get to eat any, he was too busy fending off the crow. There was this really neat dog, called a maned wolf. The wolf would NOT look at me! It was so annoying. He just walked and looked straight forward. Super cool wolf though. Look at those legs!

That's great habit, keep it up. Personally like to watch WWE super stars events, their behind the scene life and much more. Going to zoo will take some time, which is loss for us, but health point of view, you have to spend one hour a day in garden.
