Hello, my bucket list friends ! I got to do something really fun this weekend . I went to the Oakland Zoo for the first time . My mom and I had a great time exploring the zoo . Let’s getting going so I can tell you all about it .
Oakland zoo adventure April 2018
I have been to a good amount zoo’s before including the San Diego and San Francisco zoo (both of those were bucket list items) but I had not gotten the chance to visit the Oakland zoo until last Saturday . The zoo is about an hour away the traffic on the drive there was not too bad but the zoo it’s self was very packed . I knew it would be that way though it was a very sunny Saturday and in the bay area lots of places where going to be packed but the crowds did not stop my mom and I from having a great time . The Oakland zoo is a pretty good-sized zoo and there are many animals to see . My favorite were the fruit bats ! They were so big ! They sleep upside down with their wings wrapped around them . It was amazing to watch them unwrap their huge wings ! I even got to see one eat a banana . I also enjoyed seeing the elephants , zebras and petting goats at the petting zoo . We also stopped by the gift shop where I got a key chain a pencil , a reusable bag with a turtle on it and my favorite thing that I got was a new snow globe to add to my collection ! My mom and I had lunch at the zoo the veggie burgers were wonderful . We ended our trip to the zoo with are ride on the gondola the wait was long but the views where beautiful . If your ever in the area I recommend going to visit this fun zoo . I hope I get to go again sometime .
Rock on- Christina Epperly
