THE ZOO REOPENS


Many things are reopening here, although I question the wisdom of it. People are very tired of being cooped up and are bursting to get out, although the danger isn't much different than when the quarantine started. Compliance with masks is fairly good, but only fairly. Social distancing is often ignored, although some are careful.

The St. Louis Zoo reopened this week. It controls the number of people by requiring online, timed tickets (although, as always, it is free). This week was members only and we took Ellie. My daughter and I had to work some of the day so we went at 10, getting me the worst possible light. Plus, it's summertime hot. Ellie was bouncing off the walls while my legs turned to rubber. Mrs. C and I sat for a while while the kid took a spin on the carousel.

I thinnk the Belgrade Zoo is open, too. I share your POV about people not being so careful...

Our zoo opened last weekend too Bob, with the same conditions you had. We can only do the right thing for ourselves when it comes to safe distancing, and hope that others do the same. I bet Madeleine thoroughly enjoyed the visit 🐅🐒
