It was a beautiful day out. The sun was shinning. The sky was blue and while it was nice and warm it was in no way hot. Just perfect.
We decided to have lunch before we got there so we wouldn't have to take time away from the animals.
I had never fed a giraffe before. Have you? Did you know they have a super long tongue that curl up to take the food. Plus their tongues are like sand paper!
It was a very pretty zoo too. Lots of trees, flowers and grass areas. It also sits up on a little hill so it over looks the Ocean.
We couldn't decide which ones were our favorite. We loved them all.
After several hours we had our fill of the Zoo and decided to move on. We were not sure what we were going to do but sat out to explore the city.
Trinity really wanted to go in the water and swim. But, we didn't bring her bathing suit or even a towel.
We went into all the shops on the Wharf but they didn't have one bathing suit. So, we drove around State Street (which has lots of shops).
The bathing suits were so expensive that I couldn't justify buying them. She had about a dozen suits at home already.
She thought about it for about 2 seconds and decided she would rather go swimming then go any other place.
So, down to the beach we went. She went swimming for about 1 1/2 hours. We collected some shells and she had a blast!
When it was time to go home, we were getting hungry. We drove for about an hour and then pulled over to get dinner at a drive thru. We just were going to eat in the car while we were driving home.
We ate, told stories of years gone by, sang songs and had a lot of laughs. Before we knew it, we were home.
We had so much fun that she didn't want to go home. So she spent the night.
It's always nice to get away and just spend time with those we love. We had a great day. I'm so lucky to have her in my life. I love her very much!
