Honolulu Zoo

Ever since I was a kid living in Hawaii, the Honolulu Zoo has been one of my favorite places. So you can probably imagine how happy I was to find out that Jasmine was going on a field trip there this week.

Of course I brought my camera with me, so a few zoo pictures will be today's Hawaii Picture of the Day.

Right outside the zoo, is a giant banyan tree that I can remember playing in when I was a kid way back in the late 70s.

Before you go through the gate, there's a little booth outside where you can purchase a Zoo Membership. It's quite reasonable at $40 a year for a family of 6.

After you go through the gate, the first site to greet you is the orange flamingos:

Next we went to the plains to see things like antelope:

Since it was a field trip, the kids had to take notes on a clipboard recording all the animals they saw:

And of course two of our favorites sites during the day were the Peacock and the Tiger:

All in all, it was very fun day. If you'd like to learn more about the Honolulu Zoo, just pop on over to http://www.honoluluzoo.org/

Aloha til next time,
