I'm back from camp.
It was a lot of fun. We arrived at the Papanack Zoo a little before 11 and set up camp. There was a little rain while we were setting up, but it wasn't bad. After that, we had lunch, then we started our tour of the zoo.
Because we were doing a group camp, we had a guided tour of the zoo. We saw the tigers, donkeys, bison, goats, peacocks, a panther, baboons, swans, boars, foxes, and a bunch more animals I don't remember. Most of the afternoon was hot and sunny, but there was a sudden downpour that resulted in some of us getting wet, so we went back to camp to change and rest.
After supper, everyone got a cone of food to feed the more domesticated animals. We also had a campfire, then we got to watch them feed the lions.
It was an interesting day, and the girls had a wonderful time.
This morning we had to get up at 7. I woke up at 5 and thought "Yay, it's not raining."
The rain started at about 6:30.
We struck camp in the rain.
(Yes, I do have 2 tents drying in my basement.)
We were supposed to leave at noon, but it was cold enough and wet enough that everyone was gone a little after 11. (Since this was a mother-daughter camp, we had the luxury of ending early.)
It was a good experience. Maybe we'll go back in a couple of years.
