A while ago, my girlfriend, her daughter, and I went to a mini vacation of sorts. Our final destination was the beach, but we stopped in Columbia, South Carolina on the first day so we could enjoy Riverbanks Zoo.
It is definitely the largest zoo in South Carolina.
Plus it has its own aquarium.
The giraffes are always impressive.
The alpacas are very adorable.
And you can definitely spend a lot of time looking at the penguins.
She and her daughter did the whole feeding the birds with nectar thing. Most of the birds were so full that it was a struggle to get a few of them to be hungry enough to eat the nectar we bought.
We all had a wonderful time there.
