Going to the Zoo

Weekly Photo Theme – The Zoo

I found out a little late in the week that the local zoo is only open until 4:45pm. With me working until 4pm that just was not enough time to properly explore (little as it is). I had to drop my daughter off at a friends house early in the afternoon on Saturday and drove down to the zoo. I now remember why it has been so long since I last visited. It just doesn’t work for me. The fences are made of too large of wires to properly focus through them and there are only a handful of the animals visible without fences. It definitely did not hep my exploration going midday as quite of few of the animals were enjoying a siesta! I did manage to come away with a few worthy images. Next time though I will make the trip back to Syracuse.

  1. Love the peacocks. I’d love a good zoo trip. I’ve been wanting to do a Bronx Zoo trip for a long time. Possible blogger meet-up idea?

  2. Just for the heck of it, I looked into bus trips to the zoo yesterday. A company in my area offers a trip there once a month for July, August and September. $80 for bus fare and admission to the zoo – not a bad deal I thought, since zoo admission is $35. It’s too late, I’m sure, to try to get anyone together for the July date, and I’ll be in Maine for the August one, but do you think we might be able to try for the September date? I’m not sure how many bloggers of our mutual community would be in radius for this to be a plausible idea, but perhaps we could put it out there.

    • I think September would be a great time. I’ve been itching to get back to the city (love to visit, not keen on living there).
