Road Trip continues Memphis

Today we went to the Memphis zoo. It is a perfect day and I was surprised and what a wonderful zoo it is! The exhibits are very nice and I love how the gardens and culture of the country the animal represents,  is incorporated as well. This is a world class zoo and I feel it is really a good thing to see the animals, the plants and art all around the zoo.

We could get up close and personal to many of them, the bird is taking our donation and putting it in the jar for the wildlife fund.

I was so impressed with the enclosure as well as the viewing area. I have never had the opportunity to see a Panda and it was so cool. And we could spend time and observe them, no throngs of people here today!

Very nice areas for the elephants.  2015-09-23 13.05.02 2015-09-23 13.05.42 2015-09-23 13.13.11 2015-09-23 13.13.27 2015-09-23 13.13.44 2015-09-23 13.13.51 2015-09-23 13.14.14

The male gorilla was cross during feeding time and he threw stuff at the zoo keeper. We had a nice view of them and overall a wonderful day.

After we left the zoo, we drove to St Louis. On our way we had the opportunity to stop at a really fun restaurant called Lambert’s…. Home of the Throwed rolls. Yep, they throw softball sized dinner rolls at you. The food was cheap and plentiful. It was really good, too. They come by with pots of pass around food like okra and potatoes to go with your meal. A really lighthearted and fun place. It is in Sikeston , MO, and as our server said, “it’s something different.” Stop and eat there, you won’t regret it. It has southern food, wonderful bbq and enlarge the pic with my husbands meal. It was a filled 14 inch frying  pan!!!
