Going to the Zoo

Penguins at the Oregon Zoo

On an unsurprisingly rainy day, J and I went to the zoo. I actually can't believe that we hadn't been there before. It's one of our secret weekday dates that we go on sometimes. Although picking a rainy day was maybe not our best thought-out plan. I love that Portland doesn't shut down in the rain, because frankly it rains too much to let it get in the way of plans. However this means the zoo was full of as many children and school groups as you'd expect on a weekday. Except everyone was mostly sticking to the indoor exhibits in order to stay somewhat dry. J and I got pretty wet enjoying the outside viewing areas.

The apes are my favorite exhibit at probably any zoo. Mostly they were just lounging about sleeping and grooming each other trying to stay dry though. I think most of the animals, except the birds were pretty much the same. The birds (and the otters) were all for the weather though.
