I tried to go on the Jungle Boat ride to get a picture of the zebras and lions but the lines were so long, they were sending them upstairs. Last time I went through that line, I hurt my knees and didn't want to chance it again.
We had dinner at the Bengal Barbecue and walked through the gift shop nearby.
While, we're over this way, just to let you know. . . . This is the Indiana Jones ride.
|taken April 24, 2014 so I'm not sure when "Spring" is|
These were in the gift shop and were super soft.
Lions, elephants, giraffes, and zebras! um, don't remember seeing tigers.
There were also safari print mouse ears and ear/tail sets but they didn't photograph well.
This was by the register at the Bengal Barbecue.
Now, I found some Z titles.
An old favorite (part of a trilogy) and wowza! That's not what my cover looks like ;-)
Zinnia by Jayne Castle (Amanda Quick/Jayne Anne Krentz)
1997, mass market paperback
journal and dig up answers to his own mysterious past. Zinnia doesn’t have to be psychic to know what else Nick wants; soon they’re reaching the electrifying heights of ecstasy—and danger.

Zero Day by Mark Russinovich
Over the Atlantic, an airliner’s controls suddenly stop reacting. In Japan, an oil tanker runs aground when its navigational system fails. And in America, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl.
At first, these computer failures seem unrelated. But Jeff Aiken, a former government analyst who saw the mistakes made before 9/11, fears that there may be a more serious attack coming. And he soon realizes that there isn’t much time if he hopes to stop an international disaster.
The Zero Game by Brad Meltzer
2004, paperback, kindle, etc. (unread)
Matthew Mercer and Harris Sandler are playing a mysterious game. It’s a game almost no one knows about—not their friends, not their co-workers, and certainly not their bosses, who are some of the most powerful Senators and Congressmen on Capitol Hill.
It’s a game that has everything: risk, reward, mystery, and the thrill of knowing that—just by being invited to play—you’ve confirmed your status as a true power broker in Washington.
But as Matthew and Harris quickly discover, the Zero Game is hiding a secret so explosive, it will shake Washington to its core. And when one player turns up dead, a dedicated young staffer will find himself relying on a tough, idealistic seventeen-year-old Senate page to help keep him alive…as he plays the Zero Game to its heart-pounding end.
Zero Day by David Baldacci
Puller is called out on a case in a remote, rural area in West Virginia coal country far from any military outpost. Someone has stumbled onto a brutal crime scene, a family slaughtered. The local homicide detective, a headstrong woman with personal demons of her own, joins forces with Puller in the investigation. As Puller digs through deception after deception, he realizes that absolutely nothing he's seen in this small town, and no one in it, are what they seem. Facing a potential conspiracy that reaches far beyond the hills of West Virginia, he is one man on the hunt for justice against an overwhelming force.
I've read three of these and would not only read these authors again, I would totally read these books again.
