Hippo Encounter at the San Diego Zoo






Last week AJ and I tagged along with GJ on a business trip to San Diego. 
It was a great trip for all of us. We enjoyed our travels and returned home safely.  

The San Diego Zoo has a reputation of being one of the top zoos in the U.S.A.
Ask AJ what his favorite thing was and he will tell you it was seeing the hippos.
These are his photos from his phone.  Watching the mother and baby interact was amazing!

AJ enjoyed the Zoo on Saturday so much that we went to the SD Zoo Safari Park north of San Diego on Monday.

That's the way I feel about our walruses, especially the one who was little Nereus, with a story all his own.

How wonderful for AJ to have all the experiences of travel with you. The San Diego Zoo is very impressive and the hippos are so fun to see.

Great photos! I don't guess I've ever seen a hippo up close!

As you may have seen on my blog we went to Disnayland recently, and stopped overnight in San Diego on the way, enjoying a wonderful breakfast at the Broken Yolk Restaurant there. I lived in San Diego as a child and had visited once as an adult, but I didn't remember just how LOVELY a city it is! I was impressed with its charm on this trip! The time before, we had gone to both the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park with our then 6 year old daughter, and LOVED both!!!!! I can't wait to go back and see both (and Sea World as well!) with our grandson on a future excursion! Glad you had such glowing things to say about the Zoo! Can't wait to see it again!
