San Diego Zoo

No visit to San Diego is complete without seeing the zoo, so off we went.

The zoo is famous for its koala bears, which are cute little things that resemble stuffed animals.  Most of the time they are some cats I know. 

But we were lucky enough to see some awake during our visit.

We started the day by riding the aerial tramway as it was suggested to use this as an overview of the park.

The polar bear were great fun and you can see in this photo the size of them.  My son-in-law is about six feet tall, and the statue of the bear is lifesize.  Yikes.  Even scarier is the amount of food they take in each day....the polar bears, that is.

The kids were mugging in this display with the sea otters.

While we were observing the polar bears, one was frolicking in the pool and we watched him do several back flips in the water.  Unfortunately, this was not conducive to photography to capture the moment.

Does this bird resemble Rod Stewart to you, or is it just me?

And of course, there's always those young males that are fascinated with their anatomy.

Long Live the Queen of the Zoo


  1. We were able to visit here a few years ago. We were blessed to see the Panda Bears, who had young then. I was amazed. I still am.
    Great pictures of a great zoo. It is wonderful you all were able to visit it together.

  2. These are wonderful photos. I just love the koala bears! Your water shots of the polar bear are amazing. I think I saw a bird similar to that one at Disney's Wild Animal park. Amazing how nature designs its critters. Keep these fabulous photos coming. I'm really loving this adventure. Have a super day, hugs, Edna B.
