GOOD FENCES

This was our second trip to the zoo in as many days, but as my in-laws came for Easter we thought they would enjoy it here.  We had a great walk, an enjoyable time looking at all the animals and birds, and we were very happy our family enjoyed it as much as we did.


There was a small carousel surrounded by a simple iron fence.  Both times we visited this past week it was not being used.  The biggest attraction last Sunday was the Easter Egg hunt.  We decided to go as soon as the place opened and very glad we did as when we left, there was a long line of cars waiting to get into the parking lot.















You can click on the name, The Run*A*Round Ranch Report, to see other Good Fences participants.  

Thank you Theresa for hosting this fun meme.

  29. That is a very beautiful carousel! I have not seen one with so many different types of jungle animals - usually just horses. The carousel was always my favorite ride as a child. Hope you have a lovely weekend! xo Karen

  30. I've never seen a carousel as lovely as that one with its variety of animals. Even now I don't think I'd be able to resist that elephant.
