The walk was a lot of fun! I’m so glad that we participated. The Sugarbetes raised almost $300.00 for Diabetes, we got to see the animals at the zoo and we got our walk on!!
I am a little broken today…feet & legs hurt. But it was a good time.
I, of course, took a TON of photos. Here are a few:
The walk begins! There were LOTS of people there. All of the red caps are ‘Red Striders’ or people who have diabetes themselves. I wore a red shirt and wore my hat on my purse.
Another photo of the crowd. There were these kids and young men dressed in old time American costumes and playing drums, it was pretty cool!
This tiger came to the edge and was just sitting there staring at us. I REALLY wish I would have thought to bring my other lens for my camera. Next time, deifnitely!
Why did the peacock cross the road? lol Peacocks and peahens run freely in the zoo. I guess they lost their pretty feathers last week, which is too bad. They were all kind of sad looking…beautiful still though.
The Zebras were too far away! 🙁 One would get on his hind legs to get leaves in the trees.
This is a grizzly bear, I believe. They had 4 different kinds of bears there. This bear was funny, he got in the water and then just sat there like this. I need to re-edit this photo and bring the purple in the lavender out better. The zoo is full of gardens and is probably really pretty in the spring/early summer. The gardens were kind of sad looking.
Giraffes are awesome. The end.
The Detroit Zoo has this really cool "Artic Circle of Life" exhibit. You can sit in a glass tunnel and the seals and polar bears swim all around you. Unfortunately, the bears weren’t swimming, but the seals were!
My husband being silly with the polar bear mask in the gift shop!
We FINALLY made it to the finish line! LOL
Cool shirt in the gift shop!! lol
The water tower!
