Did, indeed, make it to the zoo today. The weather was really nice, so LOTS of people had the same idea. Almost turned around and didn’t go because the line of cars to get in was INSANE. But did manage to cut a lot of people by taking the other lane (apparently most people did not realize there was a second lane into the zoo, or simply chose not to use it for whatever reason), so I was okay with following through. Didn’t stay long because Aidan wasn’t into walking and it was crowded, so seeing the good stuff was a hassle, and large crowds of people slow things down way too much.
I didn’t make it back to the gorillas to visit Dottie, unfortunately. It would have taken forever to get back there at the rate the crowd was moving. But I saw a bunch of other cool animals.
