The polar bear enclosure was great, two of them were playing and we could see them wrestling under water! The Panda`s were pretty good too, and there were lots of jokes about PANDA WATCH (another Anchor Man reference!)

We had a leisurely drive to Los Angeles that afternoon and checked out some of the Californian beaches along the way ...
