San Diego Safari Park


The Chosen One had a business trip to San Diego last week and we decided it was perfect timing for me to go as well. I spent my first day and a half with my dear friend, Gloria. She lives in Oceanside, California. I took this on our pier walk. 
I'm thinking it might make a very nice post card.

The Chosen One and I go to zoos any time there is one available. My Daddy helped create the North Carolina Zoo and was a big part of it's early years so I always think of him and his perspective when I am at a zoo. All of these photos were taken at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, California. I used the zoom on all but the first two. Yes, I could have petted the Serval if it had been allowed!

  6. Wow, Beverly, your photos are fantastic. I LOVE the one of the lioness lazing around. And your first photo of the seagulls would definitely make a great postcard! Very well done...I'm going to scroll back up and enjoy another look! xo

    1. Oh, I definitely will! He used to have projects with a company in San Jose but no longer. I have a friend in Sacramento, we're meeting in Palm Springs in March but if I ever make it to her place, I'll rent a car to see you!
