A Zoo and an Organ

There are not too many places in the world where one can visit a zoo in the morning and attend an organ concert in the afternoon all in the same park.  
However, in San Diego, California it is possible at Balboa Park

There, a person can---
watch the lions being fed their morning meal; 

  • feel for the panda after she makes make five loops around her enclosure before lying panting on a log;  

marvel at the flamingos standing on one spindly leg while searching their pond for invisible food;
                               gawk at the two-humped camel standing like a statue;

mourn for the elephants weaving their trunks in boredom;
and yes, even hear an organ concert at the Spreckels OUTDOOR Organ Pavilion - 
on one of the largest outdoor pipe organs in the world!
