Feeding Time at The Zoo?

We went to the Alexandria Zoo yesterday for their annual free admission day and had a blast.  This zoo has really grown and added on see the following link: Alexandria Zoological Park.  We always love to check out the duck over by the shrimp boat display.

We noticed a squirrel there eating away at the duck food and only one duck on one side of the dish as we watched it became noticeable at how scared the ducks were of the squirrel as they tired to circle wide around the squirrel to get to the food.  One even had a pronounced limp and sure enough as they got around the feeder to eat the squirrel snarled at them and chased them off.

I guess this there is no love lost there between ducks and the squirrel.

Mardi Gras At The Zoo

One of our favorite places to go is the zoo and the Alexandria Zoo is a real treat. Surrounded by beautiful plantings and tons of animals with ponds every where this is truly a place to come and unwind, enjoy life, commune with others, ride the train or just plain sit.

This weekend  they are having a tribute to Mardi Gras at the zoo so guess were we are headed.  Atwood’s will have samples of their famous King Cakes which them ship all over at this time of year.  Atwoods Bakery .
