I went to Karen's yesterday. Then Savannah, Karen and I went to Lafayette, to the park/zoo.
Here's Savannah and Karen standing in front of the restrooms and gift shop, the entrance to the zoo.
Then I had them poke their faces into the picture board. LOL This needs to be lower for the little kids.
We looked at the wallabies first. One had a new baby. The zoo keeper was putting a tiny sprinkler out for them to play in. They had a shallow pond there for them too.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree, merry, merry king of the bush is he, Laugh kookaburra, laugh kookaburra, gay your life must be..yes, that's from an old church camp song. LOL
Can you see a spot of white in the corner by the grassy bush? There's a pair of bald eagles back there.
When coming back around one had stepped out and I got this photo thru a glassed over peep hole.
Hope you can see the otter. He kind of blended in once he got wet. Such a sleek swimmer.
This is a statue of an otter next to their pen/pond. There were many wonderful statues at this small zoo. There were wild life birds, animals, a petting zoo, and a butterfly enclosure also. I will show more pictures later.
I had one of the nicest days that I have had in a long time. It was a pretty day, very hot as the day went on. We stayed at the zoo, looked at everything. Then went to lunch. We even stopped by the nursing home to visit with Karen's twin sister , Liz. She introduced us to her patients, I am not sure they will ever remember us, as Liz is in charge of the Alzeheimer's unit. But some seemed genuinely happy to talk with us or listen to us. We complimented their hair and nails. I only saw one man there.
Hope everyone has a beautiful Sunday. XO
