Tall & Tan & Young & Lovely ...

What a beautiful day Ken and I had at the zoo! The fog had lifted, the weather was warm and the crowds were negligible. The nearby beach sparkled just beyond the giraffe's enclosure. It was an ideal time to take a stroll, visit and get as many animal photos as might have hoped for.

Tonight we went to our grandson's basketball game and had some very authentic Mexican food for dinner...what a delightful little vacation this has been!
Louise, such beautiful lighting you caught! Sounds representative of your day, today... wonderful!

Lovely shot. And sounds like a lovely day. I think the fog must have moved up north today to Playa del Rey. Unfortunately, the giraffes didn't move up the coast with it.

Holidays are good for the mind and the soul. Glad you had a nice one

@mbrutus Had they done so, I expect it might have been a bit startling!

@elatedpixie Your name came up today as I was telling Ken that we'd discussed the weather yesterday!

@huvesaker Thank you, Boo... We only came a couple hours up the coast to visit the grandkids...and then while they were in school, we took off and went to the zoo!

Oh super lighting! Thank you for sending your friend Pam over to mine - she has been thoroughly entertaining me and making me smile with her wonderful anecdotes and memories of some of the same places that I love so well.
