Hopefully you haven’t wandered off of the trail since leaving Part 1.
We had just wandered through the farm animal section of the park.
Although, I am curious as to what happens if you DO leave the trail at some time?
“No, we’re BEEFalo! Absolutely no relation to those Buffalo guys…”
By the way, this is the Atlanta Cardinal who is not related to the Arizona Cardinals. I think that his cousin is one of the Gettysburg Robins, though.
A covered bridge…
Which made me laugh. Actually, I enjoyed this bridge quite a bit. Why?
Despite the fact that we were surrounded by trees perhaps it was put up as a nice shady spot to rest…
Nope, that can’t be it either since most of the roof is missing. Don’t get me wrong, I would rather have the park spend money on the animals than on maintaining this structure, but they could at least change the sign to read, “Partially Covered Pathway.”
“DUCK STAMPEDE!!” I yelled
I couldn’t get my camera out quickly enough to get a good picture, but it was great. There were about 20 ducklings running just as fast as they could right towards us… with the parents trying to keep up. There is nothing cuter than a stampeding herd of ducklings!
I can’t recall what pen we were next to, but it wasn’t anything that the ducks should be excited to see.
What was their hurry?
Was I really seeing this??
We were in Atlanta, right?
I was staring right at a stand of BAMBOO! I never would have thought that anybody in the States was growing bamboo! Silly me always pictured it over in China with a panda bear happily munching away.
I’ve seen those little bamboo shoots that people grow in the little planters, but this was something else. I would have liked to have touched it, just to see how stout the pole was. It was roped off so I left it alone.
It was really neat, though.
Is it weird that the bamboo was my favorite part of an animal park??
“Take a look at this! Watch.. I will bat all of my blue eyes at you. Ladies, you know you want this…”
“I had something in my feathers… It’s all cool.. no big deal… I’m just going over.. um… here… now…”
“He thinks that he’s such a stud. Whatever! I’ve seen him shaking his tail feathers at other hens and I’m not going to deal with that. I don’t need somebody who is going to run around and shake his feathers for any ol’ hen in the park!”
Our last stop was at General Lee’s headquarters. This absolutely disgusts me. They named an overgrown rodent after my beloved General Robert E. Lee. I know that they were just trying to honor him, but seriously? If they ever get a rescue panther then they can name it after Robert E. Lee, but not a rodent!
A stinkin’ rodent! *shakes head in disgust*
Heading back to the main building to end our visit we ran into one of Sarah’s old friends. Apparently every time she’s at this park she sees a snake in the road. I think that it must be the same snake. He’s just so Exs-s-s-s-s-s-sited to see her!
Well, this concludes our visit to the animal park. Please remember to take all trash and children with you as you leave. We hope you enjoyed your visit. Please be sure to tell your friends about us! Thanks and have a great day!
