Visiting Riverbanks Zoo And Garden In Columbia -- Part Three

Howdy y'all! 

The following blog post is the third and final part of the photojournalism series detailing my visit with family to Riverbanks Zoo and Garden in Columbia, SC.

In this part, we continue our journey through the Aquarium and Reptile House, followed by the Penguin house exhibit, the bridge across the Saluda River, and then finally the 16 acre Botanical Garden.

The Tropical Reefs exhibit is outstanding!
I found Dory!
Da-dum! Da-dum!

With that the latest adventure ends. 

My thanks to David, Olivia, J.T. and Caleab Morris for taking me along on this trip to Riverbanks Zoo and Garden. As always I had a great time hanging out with my favorite family at one of my all-time favorite places to visit in the State of South Carolina. 

If y'all are ever in the area of Columbia, be sure to check out Riverbanks and bring your family. It is truly a great way to spend the day. 

As always have a wonderful Dixie Day, y'all!
