Logan did awesome, as always. We had one nursing break and that,along with a short nap in the stroller, kept him going for the almost 3.5 hours we were at the park. He's a trooper!
He spent most of the time in the stroller and, honestly, was too far away from most of the animals to really notice much. But, in the Rocky Harbor (I think that's the name) underwater viewing area for the sea otters, walruses, puffins (mmm - tasty in the Faroe Islands!) and sea lions - he could really see the animals right there.
He especially loved the puffins - there was one of two of them right there splashing around in front of him and was watching them go back and forth.
Zoos do great things - I adore the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal park and even the San Diego zoo is pretty darn good with most of their habitats. The good zoos do good work with conservation....but it's still not something I love. Don't even talk to me about Sea World! I went a few years ago in San Diego and will never willingly go again.
I don't doubt that we'll head back for Zoo Lights this winter...but that's probably going to be our only annual trip to the zoo...
On a happy note - it was WONDERFUL to see this friend - he's been away from the area for about 12 years and it's such a treat to spend even a few hours with him. Until our next ski vacation together!
