Another Visit to Zoo Atlanta

Since it was Memorial Day today and Anna didn't have to go to work, we went to Zoo Atlanta. It was only our second outing as a family since the Coronavirus pandemic began a little over a year ago, and also the first time Anna's been to the zoo in a couple of years. (I've been twice in the last eighteen months--once with Jessica and Elyse shortly before the pandemic was declared, and once with Elyse during the pandemic--we both wore our masks then, of course.)

Since Anna and I are both fully vaccinated and most of the zoo is outdoors, we didn't wear our masks except when we went to one of the indoor exhibits, like the amphibian/reptile house. (The zoo's rules call for all visitors to wear masks in all of the indoor exhibits, even those visitors who are fully vaccinated. That's probably a good idea, since it may be the only way to convince certain people who aren't fully vaccinated to wear masks when they ought to be.)

Here are some of the pictures I took today--starting with the walk from the car; we had to park quite a ways away--of the animals and the people we saw:

Anna and Elyse walking towards Grant Park

This was in a yard near where we parked

I'm not sure what they were looking at, but it wasn't the lion below, even though the proximity of the photographs kind of implies that

I'm not sure what they were looking at, but it wasn't the ostrich below, even though...oh, you know what I mean

Wasn't this guy in The NeverEnding Story?

I don't have a picture of myself to include here, but this is a pretty good approximation

I hope Jessica doesn't mind my posting this picture
