Two Down; Fourteen To Go
After his second week of infusion with the new cancer drug, we celebrated by whisking ourselves off to the Reid Park Zoo where we found this charming little Squirrel Monkey.
There were lots of them swinging around in their enclosure, but this guy has the run of the place. As it turns out, he is made of plaster, but so life like that we were nearly fooled. He makes a good interest piece.
Midday is not the optimum time to visit a zoo in warm weather as many of the inhabitants are wisely observing siesta time, but we enjoyed seeing the animals that were out and about. The giraffes were particularly stately, and huge! The rhino favored my camera with his south end as he headed north, so that was interesting! Otherwise, he was just snoozing away in the sun.
The attraction was very clean and the staff had a happy air about them. It seemed like everyone there really cared about what they were doing, and had a happy workplace. There were many families with children of all ages, as well as groups of children on outings, and it was a pleasure to see so many people having a good time.
It was a very pleasant experience! ;->
