Day 5 – Michelle’s sense of direction is better than Anne’s

Tony left for work and Michelle and Anne had to find something to do. They finally settled on a movie and the Zoo. Finding the theater was eventful.

After the movie (Rio 2) and a quick lunch at Subway, Michelle and Anne headed out to the Woodland Park Zoo a short bus ride north of Downtown Seattle. Michelle wanted to feed the birds in the aviary and see the snow that was brought in for the grizzly bears’ 20th birthday. Most of the animals were eating and settling in for the night. We saw he river otters in their den, the elephants eating, and one orangutan up close.

We had dinner at the Crab Pot on the waterfront with one of Tony’s coworkers. Tony, Michelle and Daniel enjoyed the mound of shellfish, complete with mallets and bibs. Anne chose an eyeball-free option of salmon and chips.

Michelle likes to shell and eat crab for many reasons. One of the big ones is she gets to play with the parts.
