We spent this morning at the Woodland Park Zoo. It started out looking to be a typical gloomy Seattle spring day, but the sunlight surprised us.
The animals were out and about and being all photogenic, so how could I refuse them?
We started with the komodo dragons. There's a wonderful statue outside the exhibit.
And then, of course, the real thing:

And we were delighted by the new wolves, a pack of four sisters:

As were the snow leopards:
Ended the tour with the flamingos:
Then we had super tasty bbq for lunch here:
This place is on Stone Way, just up from the intersection at 34th. I highly recommend it. Creamy dreamy mac & cheese, and their beef brisket was superb. If you aren't completely stuffed to bloating, have a blondie too.
