Fierce Creatures

Today we went to the zoo! We was Ruth, one of her college friends, myself and Carson, my old organ student from Prince George, and excitingly, now the organ scholar at North Greenville College, SC!

Columbia has a small zoo, but it did seem like almost everything we saw in the first hour was life threatening or at least capable of inflicting serious injury (and that was just the local wildlife) – biting, poisoning, kicking, strangling, etc. However, in stark contrast, almost everything else (fierce or not) seemed to be  asleep, apart from the overweight starfish

After the zoo we had lunch, then a walk around the South Carolina state house, including the monument erected as an apology for the slave trade. We even saw a metal palmeto palm and a real palm with a crescent moon in the background (South Carolina’s state emblem) – how cool!
