NC Zoo with SW Freshmen

I recently was blessed with the opportunity to chaperone a group of Freshmen from Caitlin’s high school to the NC Zoo. At the time I signed up for this, I thought it would be great and a fun time. But as we approached that day, it became more and more clear that the skies would not be clear and there would be plenty of rain.

But we made the most of it. Very few kids had an umbrella. A few had a light weight rain jacket. A few also had hooded sweatshirts… can’t imagine wearing that after it is mostly soaked with rain. It rained and heavy at times, but towards the end of our visit, it began to clear up.

The good news, most animals could care less that it was raining. The polar bear for example, he was having a blast, most active I have seen the polar bear at the zoo (see video below). There was a little white fox that didn’t like the rain and was trying desperately to stay out of it (see video below). The otter, he seemed to almost be having a party doing backflips and all (see video below).

Here is a sample collection of pictures from the day.
