Seattle : 26 August 2001

Went to a bagel place for coffee and a cookie and to get bagels for lunch then we got the bus to the zoo. 

The animals are set up in huge habitats – so huge it’s sometimes hard to see them – and it was lovely. We watched the brown bears outside for a while then from the inside through the glass which overlooked their pool. One of the bears jumped in the pool and swam right up to the glass – it was fantastic. Then he sat in the water for a while, scratching his back on a rock. 

Goats. And me, easily impressed.

We came home then went to Wendy’s for tea. Walking home, we found a little park on top of the freeway and watched the sunset, while a busker played the saxophone. Beautiful.
