  • A Day at the Zoo

    It’s day 28 of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge and I’m in the process of catching up on some of the prompts. In the mean time, here are some photos from my trip to the zoo yesterday.  This was the first time visiting the zoo since I bought the new camera.  Enjoy. As always, if you like what you see, let me know.  🙂
