Did you see that I said POLAR BEAR???
I absolutely love them.
I want to take one home and sleep on its furry furry stomach.
And. I couldn't stop taking pictures of the polar bear, Gus, who is totally awesome.
First, he was hanging out on the wall.
And I went up and held his cute little hand/paw. Through the plexi-glass. I don't think he noticed, but I don't think he minded, either.
Then, he got out of the water and shook off.
Looking adorable, obviously.
Next, Gus moved so we couldn't see him from the window we were at, so we walked to the next one - and found this sign:
Because, obviously, a messy bear IS a happy bear. Because, apparently, the bear is too busy having fun to clean and um, too poor for a maid.
We came to the next window and found that Gus was playing with an old firehose.
If I sound like I'm obsessed with Gus, um, I am. Just so you know. Did you see how sweet his face is in this picture??
Oh yeah, and the puffins were cute, too.
Not as cute as Gus, but they do what they can.
Finally, Elizabeth and I were jealous that the animals all got pictures taken of them, so we made Johnie take our picture, too.
It's been 4 days since I've been there, but I think I'm still in love with Gus.
