It’s been a while since I’ve visited the Detroit Zoo. So when the Clinton River Watershed Council decided the zoo would be the setting for their next fundraiser, I thought, “perfect!” I can become involved in an environmental mission to protect the watershed and Lake St. Clair AND take a family fun walk through the zoo!
In case you don’t know, a family fun walk means no pressure! There’s no competition. No distance requirements for the walk. On this particular morning, it was a way to beat the heat of the day and see the early bird animals.
Some of them were waiting to see us!
And dressed for the occasion!
Others, cozied up to mom, providing a rare photo op!
On the way to the “arctic”, I saw this guy missing the cold!
And this bird reminded me not to stay out in the heat too long!
I passed a couple of “meetings”.
And stopped to visit one of my favorite tall friends!
