We actually started out the morning with a breakfast stop at Doumar's (no hipsters here today, just a tour bus full of old people--they really looked like they were having a blast, watching one of the employees make fresh cones on the baker outside), and ended it at Carolina Cupcakery. Because of my account with Recycling Perks, I was able to get a BOGO on the zoo admissions, and a BOGO on the cupcakes. The zoo and cupcakes were on me. I figured I should treat Nicole because the admission to the Richmond Zoo was more than she expected, at the time.
I was looking forward to seeing the tigers, but none of them were on display. The zoo is trying to encourage them to breed, so it looks like no tigers on display until later sometime this year. :( It was kind of pointless, really, for us to go now, even though I wanted to see the Trail of the Tiger. It would have been nice for the zoo to actually put that somewhere in their website, that the tigers are off display. I would have gone later on when they were back.
Anyhoo, pictures below after the updated bucket list.
|This little attraction was pretty popular with the kids...of all ages, of course!|
|All of this Asian-inspired decor at the Trail of the Tiger is new, and it's very pretty. However, all these Asian details make the rest of the park look old and outdated.|
