Is it me, or was this the sloooooowest week ever? It was so unbearable that I’m taking tomorrow off and we’re going to the zoo!
I took that picture when we visited before, almost exactly two years ago. I didn’t really know what I was doing with my camera yet, so hopefully this time I can come back with something interesting. Oh, who am I kidding — I see animals and my shutter finger takes on a life of its own. This photo-bingeing is just that: delightful at the time, but utterly regretful when it comes time to sit down and choose which ones to edit and keep. Will that stop me? No.
Anyway, I’m really excited to see the new African Forest exhibit. I don’t have a bucket list, but if I did, an African safari would be at the very top of the list. Once a quarter or so, I take a few days to remind/bother Mark incessantly that I am dying to go to Africa and that it’s the only thing I’ve always, always wanted ever since I was a little girl. He is on board and we will do it sometime, though his idea of the ideal safari involves ending the day with some very fresh meat. I’ll try to keep him out of the kudu enclosure tomorrow, or we might not be allowed back to the zoo.
