Tuesday I took you to the zoo. In case you missed it, you can see it here.
Here is where we left off.
Another look at the map
and Sally decided she wasn't in the mood for walking, preferring instead to ride the tram.
The truth is, Sally put her car in forward gear last Monday, and rammed into her garage door. Since the garage was filled to the brim with things she hadn't dealt with in years, and boxes of goodies that needed to go to the thrift store, I volunteered to help her on Tuesday morning, because the garage replacement people were coming the next day.
Sally isn't in the best shape, and I knew she would never get everything finished if I didn't help her. So, I volunteered to help and we got as much out of the garage as we could. At least as much as the garage people told her absolutely had to be moved, and before the rain came down in buckets and buckets. Consequently, Sally was in no condition to walk around the park that night.
Pictures from the tram were hard for me to get, because I have to focus each photo. Unlike in a car, the tram wasn't on a straight course, but wove in and out of the area. It occasionally went fast, and I either missed shots, or got shots I couldn't use. Also, at times, it went slowly, then would lurch forward just as I was about to take a photo. For that, I apologize.
I'll now let you peruse these photos at your own pace. I'll only chime in when I think something needs explaining.
This shows how the zoo will look when the renovations are complete in 2016. The master plan includes the new elephant area.
Don't be fooled. This is another zoo statue.
I was quite disappointed with the tram because we saw a lot of flora (and probably a bit of fungi), but no fauna. So far I've seen lots of fences, but no animals! Look back through these photos and I'm sure you'll agree it looks more like a botanical garden than a zoo.
Of course, I appreciate your wonderful comments and the fact that you are willing to visit. I'll be back tomorrow with more zoo photos from the first night we visited. And some of the photos will even be more legible, at least I hope they will!
