Thursday morning we got up early to head out & meet Arielle & her kids at the zoo in Evansville. Jeff didn’t get to go with us, since he had to stay at the condo & work on getting a flat tire repaired, but Lindee, Mallory, Clara & I hit the road. Before we’d gone far, though, just as we were crossing over Patoka Lake, eagle-eyed Clara, in fact, spotted a bald eagle up in a tree. I’m not sure I had ever seen a bald eagle in the wild before. Very cool.
From there it was on to the Mesker Park Zoo – the oldest zoo in Indiana. We loved that our first animal siting there was this beautiful bird – what a way to kick off our day!
