After that,we headed to the San Francisco Zoo. It is a nice zoo (but pricy). We really loved seeing the chimpanzees because we came as they were feeding them. The zookeeper was there to talk with us as well. She said that they do different things each day to feed them. That day they gave them grocery bags with their food. They get a special food that contains the necessary nutrients, and they get some additional foods that provide additional nutrients as well as variety and interest. There were 3 chimpanzees and each seemed to know what belonged to who and they would grab their containers and then separate to eat. They drank water (or some liquid) out of a cup. One had a box of cereal. It was really interesting to listen to the zookeeper.
|We loved watching this baby monkey swing and play.|
Alfredo and I went to Jack London Square in Oakland. We walked around for a bit to see the square and to decide where to eat. Finally we decided on a restaurant that served seafood. Since Jack London Square is right by the water, we decided to get some good seafood. The food was delicious! Seriously so delicious.
|A statue in Jack London Square...the plaque above describes the statue. There was also a reconstruction of Jack London's cabin (made out of the actual wood and materials his cabin had been made out of.)|
|I got sea scallops because our waitress suggested them. I was so glad I did. They were so delicious. I don't know what type of sauce they put on them, but it was wonderful. I was tempted to lick my plate because it was so tasty (but I refrained).|
