Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, San Jose Thursday, July 27, 2017

Several times during the warm months Happy Hollow Park and Zoo invites seniors to Senior Safari Walkabout when adults 50+ can enter the park one hour before the general public and get free admission and parking, a great bargain.  Last year was the first year we tried this and had rain showers.  This year we had beautiful weather, which made for a more fun experience; however drawing and painting moving animals is still quite the challenge.  Fortunately, Sophia the jaguar posed for a long time while she took a nap. The tortoise ate a long and leisurely breakfast allowing for great sketching and painting.
