Orangutan Rolling

We spent a down-day staying at our hotel in Oceanside, after all that walking around theme parks and LA. We had brunch in the quaint little harbor town, sat on the beach, and headed down to La Jolla for tacos and to watch the sea lions at sunset.

Our feet needed the rest, as the following day we were headed to the San Diego Zoo. We booked one of the specialization tours, and ended up being the only people in our group! So we had a guide to drive us around the giant zoo on golf carts. We went behind the scenes at the elephant enclosure to see their diet (some like cucumbers chopped up, some like half cucumbers). We fed giraffes! We skipped the line for the pandas and saw both of them awake and eating!

The guide gave us some good tips for how to see the rest of the zoo, and that was really useful. We took the skyfari to the top and ambled our way back down through the exhibits. Somehow, the koalas were also awake when we got there. We were pretty lucky!
