I had always thought lush greenery in this city was limited to Aarey. Imagine my surprise when I was introduced to this place! . The zoo doesn't have much in the way of animals, and a most depressing enclosure for the #humbolt#penguins. But the botanical gardens are worth visiting for their lush greenery and sprawling open lawns.
There’s going to be very painful moments in your life that will change your entire world in a matter of minutes. These moments will change you. Let them make you stronger, smarter, and kinder. But don’t you go become someone you’re not. Cry. Scream if you have to. Then you straighten out that tie and keep it moving. 🧡 _____________________________________________________________ #humbolt#beach#seashore#norcal#soulful#thankful
Love how much these little penguins seemed to really enjoy being fussed over - some close their eyes and lean in for a rub just like a puppy! We really enjoyed hand feeding them and spending some time up close with them 🐧
