California Dreaming

San Diego Zoo

on March 9, 2014

We are a bit behind on blog updates so I’m going to do 3 in quick succesion.  (by the way if my spelling is bad it is because the spell checker on the new computer doesn’t have English).

San Diego zoo was always high on our loist of things we wanted to do in California.  It was the reason we wanted to come to San Diego.  As it turns out there are lots of reasons to come to San Diego.  It is a lovely city and I would happily return to spend more time here.

The main attraction of San Diego Zoo is the fact they have pandas.  Now I’ve always thought the red panda was a lovely animal that deserves more credit.

See, isn’t he cute?  But the real pandas take all the glory.

We were lucky, it was a quietish day at the zoo so we didn’t nave to queue and the panda was awake and eating when we got there.  About 3 minutes after we arrived she stopped eating, turned around and went to sleep.  The volenteer giving the commentary said that would be it for about 3 hours.

Panda are all we and good but they have loads of other great animals at the zoo.  I mean have you ever seen a Tasmanian devil?  Me neither.

The orangutangs are pretty cool.

I’ve never seen a grizzly bear before.

Letitia was the star of the sea lion show.

Which also featured an owl – not quite sure why, I didn’t get the link.

But by far and away the stars of the day were the koalas.  They are just adorable.  And of course the fact that Jon bases our business model on the koala brothers (we’re here to help) just added to the exitement.

All in all an exellent day out.  The weather was beautiful, and there were a few pink shoulders at the end of it but it was definitely worth it.
