Have you visited a Zoo lately?
In these times of higher travel cost the local zoo might just be the respite you need from that busy life. A few years back we moved to a house not far from the local zoo. Thinking it would be a good to support the local commuinty and also a place to get some walking in, I picked up a couple of annual passes to the Zoo.
There is excitment in the air.
I do not know why it is but in minutes of arriving at the Zoo my body starts to relax. Even before seeing the first animal a calming occurs, it has something to do with walking the pathway, the sound of other visitors and the trees over head. When I go to the local Zoo I feel like I am on vacation.
