I stopped in New Orleans yesterday on my way back home to Texas from Mississippi and did this week's Sunday Scavenger Hunt at the Audubon Zoo. It was so much fun, I may have to start doing them in a similar fashion from now on.
I walked through the park and almost got lost since the path is not clearly marked. A helpful woman had the idea of Googling a map and I wondered why I hadn't thought of it first. Armed with walking directions on my smart phone I had no trouble finding my destination. I did opt to take the free shuttle back to the other side of Audubon Park at the end of the day, though. It's only a mile, but I was tired and it was beginning to grow dark.
1) Vision: Giraffes have nearly 360 degree vision due to the placement of their eyes, enabling them to spot predators.
2) Strong: This spider monkey used his very strong tail to hang on hands free.
3) Buttons: Button eyes on the stuffed animals for sale in the gift shop.
4) Map: You are here.
5) Favorite Fruit: A Golden Lion Tamarin enjoys an orange.
Next week's items are home or thankful, in the kitchen, couple, bubbles, and trees.
