One of the few places I had never visited while in Florida, was the Jacksonville zoo. My daughter told me it wasn’t the biggest zoo, but it would be fun for the girls, so we headed out. I was used to our zoo back where I lived. There were places all over the zoo where you could get under shade and it would be a lot cooler. Jacksonville zoo had a lot of shaded areas, but it didn’t help to escape the heat and humidity of summer. I felt like I was going to get sick from the heat, but I wasn’t going to tell my daughter that. It was getting close to lunch time, and I simply said I needed to get some lunch. She started toward an area where you could hotdogs, hamburgers and other things, and I was sure she was going to suggest we eat at one of the picnic tables. I grabbed my granddaughter’s hand and pointed to the small restaurant where she could watch the animals while we ate. It advertised air conditioning on the window, and I already knew I was going to sit inside while we ate. We hadn’t even finished our lunch when my youngest granddaughter yawned. She said she was tired and asked if we could go back to my daughter’s house. I couldn’t tell her no. She was only six and needed to get out of the heat and humidity at Jacksonville Zoo. My daughter wasn’t happy, but I was the one who paid the entrance fee for all of us, and I paid for lunch. All she had to do was drive us to the zoo and back to her house.
