However, the above has nothing to do with anything I will write because apart from the zoo, I sometimes have no idea what I'm going write as I begin. So as I said Sunday morning was quiet, Arlene and I had made plans to see each other in the afternoon. We both do the same thing for the same company in different locations. On any given day you can start work at 6 a.m. or have your shift end at 10 p.m. so Sunday is a good day to get together, despite the fact we live next door to each other. It wasn't bright and sunny like Saturday was but it was fairly warm as the day before. I had a case of cabin fever as the only places I've been for the last two weeks, my house, my car and work. I suggested the local zoo. I knew some of the animals weren't available because of the winter. Still it was seasonably warm, the zoo was open and it was the next city north with a short highway drive. It was overcast and any of the outdoor animals were fenced in (duh!) and behind some not so clean
plexi-glass. Of course I took pictures. I do it because it's fun. I make no great claims as a photographer. I take pictures. I say this because some of these pictures have been doctored up, more so than usual.
Though unseasonably warm it was still a gloomy day yet there was a pretty good crowd. Mostly young families with kids, grandparents and just a mix. I remember coming here when I was a kid. The two big stars were a polar bear and an African elephant. It's not a top zoo in regards to any national recognition, but still it's a pretty neat place to have so close by. The gorilla was spending the winter on the other side of Boston. I don't know about the giraffe. He could have passed on as it's been over 20 years since I was last here. The most entertaining animal was the sea otter. They can really maneuver in the water.
Not much new to report over the last couple of days. I have a couple of things to do but nothing too strenuous. So that's it for now.
I'm outta here.
Oops! I forgot the eagle and the one decent shot of the black bear.
