A day at the zoo

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:

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.
