|We spent the day at the fabulous San Diego Zoo. The zoo so beautifully utilizes the rolling landscape and lush foliage to display the animals. We had a special moment at the polar bear exhibit. A special donor made it possible for a huge delivery of snow to be placed in the cage. Local sculptors then formed the snow into polar bear forms and hid treats within the snow. The bears frolicked to great applause by the audience as they performed all sorts of antics in the snow. Everyone and the bears had a great time. Also special was the panda exhibit where the mother and her cub enjoyed time together. It was one of the best zoos we have visited. The animals all looked so healthy and the grounds were kept especially clean. We then went to the San Diego Pier Cafe and enjoyed grilled salmon,tilapia,and fish tacos. A visit to the adjacent Midway aircraft carrier and a memorial bronze grouping of Bob Hope entertaining the troops. The speakers played excerpts from his humorous talks as he entertained the troops.
