San Diego Zoo, Waiting for Kacy.

We went to the San Diego Zoo, lots of steep climbs and declines, some really cool animals and a lot of RAIN? Who would have thought that after weeks in the deserts of this country, we would run into three days of rain in southern California? Vicki got to see her favorite bird of all time, the secretary bird. We went through quite a bit of effort to see one of these in Africa back in 2000, so getting to see one up close and personal was a joy for her. On a funny note, the bird walked right up to a man on our side of the glass and Vicki said "that bird really seems to like you!" She then commented about what might be fed to this bird. The man then informed us that he was the caretaker for the Secretary Bird and the Condors. He went on to inform us that they usually fed it rats, but for a treat now and then, he would put a lizard in the enclosure to allow the bird to hunt.

The weather isn't bad now, with nightly lows in the mid 50 degree range and daytime highs in the mid sixties, predicted to be in the mid 70's in the next couple of days.

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our daughter Kacy, who is flying out to meet up with us for 12 days. It's been 6 months since we've seen her, we can't wait. Some of the Photo's here are just to show Kacy where she will be staying for a while...
