During (barber on right!)
For those that have never visited, let me tell you that the San Diego Zoo is just fantastic. I first visited the zoo when I was about 10 years old; I was thoroughly impressed then and the high expectations for my second visit were exceeded today. Highlights of the day included Giant anteater, Giraffe, Hippopotamus, and Jaguar. Note, I took my binoculars to the zoo today. They made a huge difference in how well I saw even the larger animals. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting any zoo in the near future. It was a really nice afternoon when all was said and done. It was also the last full day I will spend with Sonia before she meets me at the end of the year.
No new species surfaced around San Diego today. I might head east to Jacumba tomorrow, or I might stay one more day in the area to take one more crack, as long as shot as it is, at Blue-footed booby. This will likely be a last minute decision as have been most similar decisions this year. Trusting my instincts once I actually get on the bike has worked very well for me to date. I will probably stay with this strategy!
OK, that's it for tonight since I want to hang with Mom and Sonia.
