A Day at the Zoo

July 6, 2013 at 9:05 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

C’mon, who doesn’t love a day at the zoo; unless of course, it’s too hot or it’s too crowded. Went to Toronto Zoo with the kids on Thursday and it was ideal. Overcast and rainy combining with getting there early meant that it was fairly reasonable (if you’re on this side of the bars I guess).

I feel the same way every time I go to the zoo. Thrilled by the wonder of nature, but more than a little sad that it seems to exist only in this form.

The big draw this year is a couple of pandas. Last week, on one day, 22,000 people trooped by. Amazing. Still they are pretty cute. At one point, one of the pandas defecated in front of us. The crowd “ahh-ed.”  You know you’re a cute animal when that happens.
