Metroparks Zoo

As I mentioned in my catch-up post, we've been keeping ourselves busy with a number of fun outings since we've been back in Cleveland. We were very pleased to have recently had Brian's longtime friend Walter and his family visiting from Eugene, Oregon. It was great to have them around and to have an excuse to get out and visit a few more interesting places around Cleveland - Mentor Headlands, Tower City, the pool at the Ritz and the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.

We spent most of our time at the Australian Adventure section of the zoo.  Always fun to see kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, blue tongue lizards, echidnas and sulphur crested cockatoos.

Bit of a walk to Sydney!

The Aussie slang on all the signs was rather endearing, but not quite sure what "Hoo-roo and enjoy the Adventure!" means...

It was awesome to see Walter, Christina and Sierra again - if only we could catch up more than once every eight years or so!
