San Diego Zoo

Current Location: Vacationer RV Park, El Cajon, California

We were up this morning and readied ourselves for both church and a visit to the San Diego Zoo. We were out the door around 8:45 or so and headed to New Life Presbyterian church in La Mesa, about a 7 mile drive from the trailer. Their service is at 9:30 AM and Sunday School is afterwards at 10:50. We only went to church service, then left to head on to the zoo.

We got to the San Diego Zoo, parked fairly far out in the parking lot and stood in a short line to buy tickets. The zoo was very busy, but not so over-crowded to make it unbearable. Most exhibits could be seen right away with little jostling for position. The zoo is fantastic. Everyone that has been there says  that it is a must-see and we saw why.

It is a big place that we walked most of. There are a lot of fairly good hills, so we got our exercise in. After walking through most of the zoo, we decided to take the bus tour around the place. It was a welcome way to rest our feet. It was a double-decker bus and the top section did not have a roof. We originally wanted to ride up top and we could have, but would have had to wait for the next bus. We decided just to go ahead and sit on the lower level. As fate would have it, halfway through the tour it started raining lightly. So, we stayed dry.

We ate dinner at Albert’s, which is the zoo’s only sit-down, full service dining. The food was awesome, as was the atmosphere. Highly recommended if you don’t mind spending a few dollars on dinner. All in all, we agreed the zoo was well worth the price of admission. It definitely is a must-see. With that, we’ll leave you with a few pictures that Malcolm took during the day.

One thought on “San Diego Zoo

  1. So glad you got to see the Zoo! It is a great place! Another site to see is the USS Midway…berthed in San Diego. Lots to see and do in the area…although as you’ve found out, the traffic in and around San Diego is crazy!

    Enjoy,
    Doris
