I don’t even know how I got on the Denver Zoo website but I ended up wining tickets to the Denver Zoo. When I entered the contest I knew I was going to win. I was still so grateful and surprised when the email arrived that said I won. I gave away all 4 tickets and kept 1 ticket for myself. My prayer when I went is that I would be able to see the animals up close and take great pictures.
I took the bus to the zoo it took a hour or so. I missed the elephant show by ten minutes. Ironically one of the elephants came out & walked down the lane where I was sitting turned around kicked his leg out in a funny way and went back inside and I was able to get this majestic picture of him. My heart
Then I grabbed something to eat because my intermittent fasting window start time had come and gone but by the time I found where the sea lions were the show was again over, it had ended. So I went to the lower aquarium to hopefully see a sea lion and I tapped on the glass hoping that a sea lion would come out and a few minutes later he miraculously cruised by but that was the only time he passed by. I was able to get a photo of him here
They didn’t have the Mongolian beef I wanted so instead I got this for $17 dollars 5 chicken wings and some popcorn and the rice I negotiated for free
The péquins came up to me! I threw some popcorn over the glass partition but they never reached for the popcorn I gifted them but seemed to be interested in looking at the bag of popcorn I had in my hand through the glass. I asked the woman next to me not to tell that I threw over some popcorn for the cute pequins
I missed the shows and the monkeys but I still managed to see a lot and have fun. There was one weird thing that happened when a unmasked woman came unreasonably close to me and asked me if I had lost my family because she saw me walking around alone and that she also lost her family. In my mind I Was like b*** if you lost your family why you talking to me and I walked away she apologized for getting too personal PSA: single people can go places alone we aren’t lost we are just living life as we please! Anyways Here are some other cute animals I met that day below:
