It was a pretty good day at the Philadelphia Zoo, our latest photo adventure. The stroller patrol was out in force, as were a few rampaging hordes of what appeared to be Kindergarten outings, but on the whole, a good zoo day. Not too hot, occasional bits of sun, didn't get humid until we were leaving anyway. Oh, and they have self-serve ticket purchasing kiosks, for credit-card use, which we would not have seen had not a nice staffer pointed them out to us. Yay, no standing in line to buy tickets. You also pay for parking at the kiosk/windows, which makes sense, so that the attendants needn't carry cash and risk getting mugged.
After exploring the Zoo, we got a bit turned around trying to get back and ended up traveling through some...interesting sections of the city. But we found our way eventually, and lunch was had at the Cheesecake Factory in Cherry Hill, NJ which has a menu of epic proportions, along with more varieties of cheesecake than you can wave a fork at. The drive home was not as evil as I had feared, since on a summery weekend, heading Shore-ward is usually traffic hell. There was a back up for about a mile or so on 42 because of an accident, then it was smooth driving down the Expressway and parkway. My exit was backed up all the way to the parkway itself, but the cars moved quickly.
The rest of the uploaded ones, as of right now, are here. I'll probably upload more later. Also need to fix tags and descriptions as well but enjoy.
I also have more lion and tiger pics that I haven't uploaded yet, if anyone wants to see them.
