Today Matty, Betsy and I checked out the San Diego Zoo. We've all heard of the zoo's terrific reputation, and it did not disappoint. Big points to the city and the zoo officials for delivering such a quality experience. We easily could have spent two days there without seeing everything. And so many of the animals seemed healthy, energetic, and relatively happy- a rarity for captive animals in my experience. Highlights included hippos, a frisky polar bear, a particularly well-hung zebra, the pacifying hummingbird habitat, and, of course, the zoo's famous giant pandas.
The only thing that wasn't great about today was the weather. I didn't come to San Diego for 55 and overcast! No worries though. At least I can breath in this place.
