As luck would have it, everyone I know is too busy to enjoy my vacation with me. While sleeping to noon every day is attractive, I think if I started my new job without having done anything for these two weeks, I would feel I wasted the time off.
Today was the coolest day this week (a high of only 86° F!), so I grabbed my camera and Teddy Rosalie and headed off to the Buffalo Zoo.
Haven’t been to the zoo since the kids were little, and there have been a lot of changes. No more looking at large animals crammed into tiny cages – now there are individual habitats appropriate for each type of animal.
At 86° F, it was a bit warm, especially in areas with full sunlight. Due to the heat, most of the animals were dozing.
Of course, some animals don’t care about the heat, and some never forget that there are people out there who want to see them!
After awhile, Teddy Rosalie got a little annoyed that she was not the star in every, single photo.
Of course, if you’re visiting the Buffalo Zoo, you absolutely must take time to visit the bison exhibit! (Guess bison aren’t used to hot days, either.)
Even Teddy Rosalie needed a rest after awhile, and no one was using this sign.
By now, the heat was getting to me, too. It was time to head home for the air conditioning, but I didn’t mind cutting the visit short – I had asked for the reduced senior admission – and got it! At that price, and with the zoo being only about 15 minutes from my house, I can return whenever I wish.
Bet you all can’t wait!
