It was Fall when I fell in love with the zoo last year, and on this trip I was reminded why. Everything slows down. Most of the extra booths selling artery clogging snacks and junky trinkets close for the season. The pathways aren't packed with tourists and whiny children. Even the employees seem to be letting out a sigh of relief.
This year I'm going to ride the new carousel. It's full of every animal you can think of including a Unicorn! As we walked by, I informed Rob I would indeed ride that Unicorn soon. "They're all real except for the Unicorn". I looked at that boy like he had just walked out of a U.F.O. "I'm sorry what are you trying to say?" He couldn't possibly be implying that Unicorns aren't real animals. I'm still not sure where Rob stands, but I believe Unicorns are real. I saw one at the zoo.
