Wild Animal Park

Lorikeets, John Woo Style.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been to the Wild Animal Park, over twenty years.
It’s easy to forget about, being all the way up there in North County, and honestly, the Zoo is kind of expensive.
But I got connections. Kristen hooked me up with four passes and I took Carly, her sister Ronnie and her mother Arleen.

Norman: “I’m here! I’m here! Look at me! Look at Me!”

And we got the VIP show! Kristin brought out a Sugar Glider, a four foot Alligator and an African Pygmy Falcon called Norman who won us over with his obnoxious charm.

Going to the Park on a cold, stormy day means no crowds and easy parking.
Going to the Park on a cold, stormy day also means a face full of arctic wind on the Wgasa Bush Line Railway.
I took tiny little pictures with my six-year-old camera, you can see them here. In some of them you can even make out the animals!

  1. No warning for your friend? Hmmm, I see how it is, Tone.

    Btw, I had no idea I would be able to use *this* new icon so soon!

  2. Try not to think of them as birds.
    Think of them as a series of two dimensional arrays of integers who’s values correspond to color intensity.
