Woodland Park Zoo!

If you’re ever in the Seattle area, I highly recommend you visit Woodland Park Zoo, which shows how fun a zoo can be. 

The above peacock was just walking around free.  I saw a crowd of people staring at something, so I rounded a corner and was astonished by it.  Look at how gigantic the feathers were. 

I hadn’t been to the zoo since I was a child, and I was pleasantly surprised to be impressed as an adult.  The most popular scene for children was the penguin area, where they could go right up to a five foot tall glass wall and see the penguins swimming around.  The elephants were nice, but the tapirs were more impressive, since they would come up right against their glass, so we could observe their odd-looking snouts. 

The startling moment is shown below.  I looked through a narrow window and saw something staring back at me.

I love visiting the zoo; we have one a 45-minute drive away. We always come back exhausted, but it's worth it.
