Greetings from Woodland Park

Another glorious day in Seattle, scarcely a cloud in the sky -- we even saw Mount Rainier in the morning when we left the hotel -- lots of energy for the Seahawks game as we drove into town. We picked up Daniel and went to the Woodland Park Zoo, which we had last visited more than a decade ago while younger son was in the midst of his penguin enthusiasm -- the penguins are still there and also lion cubs, meerkats, Asian and North American otters, many snakes and lizards, orangutans and gorillas, bears, warthogs, and a terrific raptor show at which the most exciting animal was a guest! We went back to Daniel's apartment in the evening, watched some football, ordered Chinese food from Chens Village to celebrate the Autumn Moon Festival, and watched the lunar eclipse as the moon rose over Belltown!

Being Penguins...

...And Visiting Penguins

I Know How He Feels

Suspicious Even With Food On Sticks

Visiting Monkeys

Not Actually a Zoo Resident But Nesting In the Trees

Seattle on Seahawks Game Day

Total Eclipse of the Supermoon
