Harry and Judy's RV Trip
No Photos 2nd May 2011 - Summer 2011
Day 16-San Diego Zoo

Went to the San Diego Zoo today.  Very hot and sunny, over 90, breaking records lately. Zoo is really clean and well-maintained.  We took a double decker bus tour first to get an overall view of the zoo-100 acres! They have bus stops that go between different areas but we walked the whole thing.  Very hilly terrain, at the monkeys that actually have an escalator in the middle of a jungle setting that goes up two tiers, don't know what they do if it rains. Lots of endangered animals and ones we're not used to seeing at zoos.  The pandas are great-they have 3 and one might be pregnant-they're like big stuffed animals.  The polar bears are great but I wouldn't want to meet one in the wild, they're huge.  They had three in the exhibit where you could see them above water and underwater.  The koalas were cute but all they did was sleep.  They have quite a few of them.  Lions ang tigers and bears, of course,  A pair of lions that were only about 2" away from us on the other side of glass.  And a huge orangatan that was intimidated by 2 little black monkeys that just came up and gave the orang the evil eye and he just got up and moved away from the food.

Long, hot day, when we got back to camp I went in the pool and Harry changed the air filter in the truck.  Don't feel sorry for him, he'd rather change the filter than go in the pool. Leaving tomorrow to maybe go to Ventura but first a stop in Van Nuys to pick up an air filter kit.

Next: Day 17-San Diego to Ventura
