I sometimes looked after a dog for some friends while they went away and though it never cost us anything and I enjoyed having him she always gave me some money when she picked him up. It usually gets put away and absorbed into the other money but this time I used it to buy a yearly pass for the zoo.
Smokey was old and unwell and is no longer around so this way everytime that I visit the zoo I will think of him.
Being a Zoo Friend allows me to get in to the zoo for free for any time over the next 12 months so I plan to catch the train and go every couple of months. I like the zoo and for the $9.00 train fare it will be a cheap and nice day out.
When our kids were younger I used to think that the zoo was a cheap day out but now at a cost of $21 for an adult and $10 or so for kids it wouldn't be. I think that a pass given as a birthday or Christmas gift would be a good idea but would still add up if buying for a family. Still a good idea though, espessially if you live close by.
Does anyone here have a pass and if so do you think they are worthwhile?
