It's A Beautiful Day--And I Was Off To Enjoy It!



Thanks to a bone density test I had scheduled for last Wednesday, I was off work and could enjoy the gorgeous fall day outside with temperature at 78 degrees! I ran through my choices as to what outdoor activity to do in the afternoon among walking Abby at the park (I could join in on her walk with Gerard later), playing 9 holes of golf (I'd probably lose balls in the leaves and it cost money), or taking fall pictures at the zoo (free exercise). As you can see from the video, I picked the zoo and it was so relaxing and wonderful! It couldn't have been a more beautiful day!

The zoo was practically empty. You can hear some voices in the background during some of the video, but as you can see from the pictures between exhibits, there are no people! It was very peaceful and relaxing. I didn't cover the whole zoo because I still wanted to get some reading in before Gerard got home to walk Abby, but I was there a little over an hour.

I didn't get my camera ready in time to video the elephant squirting mud all over herself, it was fun to see! I'm so glad I went on Wednesday instead of waiting until Saturday because the rain came and the temperature dropped to the 40s by the weekend.

Seize the day folks, enjoy the nice days outside while we can because you know, winter's coming.
