safari.

i had a busy, busy day today. some friends and i made plans to go kayaking in la jolla since we got a great deal. so i dragged dj with me so that we could make use of our zoo membership since we’d already be in san diego. kayaking was so much fun…jenn and sal probably agree :) the bad thing is that i dont have any pictures because it would be pretty amazing if i could kayak and take pictures at the same time. i have lots of pictures from the san diego wild animal park though! so onto that we go….

finally there! it was so chilly while kayaking…but nice and sunny at the park. i was pretty excited since ive never been to the wild animal park. (sidenote. not a good idea to go anywhere that involves lots of walking after you’ve kayaked for 2 hours. apparently youre more tired than you think)

going on a safari! the hats make it official.

im pretty sure this is a toucan.

crowned crane.

blue macaw. love the color of the bird…its so bold! the macaw almost looks fake…but its real.

hehe these macaws are hanging upside down and “kissing”. very cute.

so dj and i were very tired from kayaking. so we decided we would go on the journey into africa tour which is included with our membership (saves money…and a great way to see the animals without walking). one of the great things about the wild animal park is seeing the animals in a somewhat natural environment. its nice that they have so much space to run around in.

im pretty sure this is a deer. we werent on the tour yet…so i cant be sure.

remember from my zoo trip i showed you the lesser flamingos? well these are the greater flamingos…gonna be honest and say that they look pretty much the same to me.

rhino. i think this one is called the black rhino. yes, its not black. but i dont name the animals…i just attempt to take pictures of them.

vulture.

i think this is a heron of some sort.

i think the tour guide said this was a gazelle. to be honest, the gazelles, antelopes, deers, etc. etc. all look the same to me :( and it doesnt help that they like to all be in the same general area…

bison. the tour guide said they are the second most dangerous animal in africa. the first? the hippo of course. anyone who has watched congo knows that. haha who remembers that movie?

giraffe. not as fun as seeing them up close and feeding them.

pelican feeding another pelican. kinda cool and disgusting at the same time.

zebras. they get their own area because apparently they are very territorial and get agressive/harrass the other animals if they are in the same area. who knew?? they looked so nice and friendly.

lazy cheetah.

lazy rhinos. everyone gets lazy when its hot…

super lazy lion!!! can you believe its sleeping on the car? how cute is that??

cute…..

lioness.

gorilla.

meekrat.

thats the end of our safari adventure. until next time!
