IRL that I did DIY, in order to support a local event but not take a Saturday away from horse activities. Also, the web site not clear on the medal situation. Awards to fastest/slowest but no word on finisher medals. Looked like the shirt might be the limit to my loot. So, after I got my shirt on one of the the pick-up days, I wandered about the zoo for an hour. Not a bad time for slaloming through camp crowds.
Shirt pic if it ever stops raining.
Break for Sea Lions
Caught the end of the sea lion feeding during my walk. The last behavior was clever. The keeper gives the We’re Done signal. One sea lion dives into the water; the other scoots over to a pen next to the gate, see photo. Keeper tosses fish into the water. Exits gate. Gives fish to other sea lion through fence. Everyone gets fish. No one tries to follow the keeper through the gate horking about more fish. Anyone who’s every had to turn a horse out in a pasture knows how problematic gate traffic can get.

Finish With Feathered Friends
Planned my route so that I would end at the Lorikeet aviary. BZ: Rainbow Lorikeet
