I decided I needed to forget about my troubles. I got him ready and we went to the zoo. We met a girl on the sea wall last week who is only here for one week while her husband is TDY. She was asking about things to do within walking distance. I invited her to go to the zoo with us. I told Tom this and he said, "Just be careful. You never know about people." Haha...her husband told her the same thing about me!
I saw plenty of these in Georgia, but I really liked this picture.
Once again, the small enclosures saddened me.
He was watching those hippos.
There were a lot of kids on field trips.
We didn't get to feed any animals, but we did spend some time in the petting zoo.
He was nibbling, not biting.
We learned that "goat" in Japanese is "yagi."
Remember the kids on the field trips? Well, they were "petting" the guinea pigs and the chicks. We didn't really think they should be allowed to. Little kids are too rough with tiny animals.
We spent a couple hours there. It was a gorgeous day and we had a good time. There were tons more flowers than there were the last time we went.
I think our little trip was just what we (I) needed.
