Wallet Card AKA Adventures in Bus Driving.

 I may have mentioned it before, but I'm a school bus driver. Part of the job is to bring groups to different places. 

On Friday I had a group that went to the zoo here in Peterborough. 

I decided I'd get a picture of the wallet card with the map. I ended up taking another picture of the map without the card. 

So this is the layout of the zoo. There's also a disc golf course and walking trails through the park area. It's nice because it's a free zoo. There's no fee to enter but at the same time, there have been rumblings about the possibility of having to enclose it further in order to keep the "zoo" designation. 

And here's a picture of the map without the card. 

Here is the description right from the Riverview Park and Zoo website:

For decades, the park and zoo have attracted over a quarter of a million visitors a year. And no wonder - the zoo features 27 exhibits, with over 48 species, including Yak, Camel, Wallaby, Emu, Macaw, Squirrel Monkey, Cougar, Plated Lizard, Meerkat and more! The park covers 55.5 acres and is the largest and most diversified playground in the city. It also features equipment for physically-challenged children. With a splash pad, frisbee golf course, walking trails, a miniature train ride, and beautiful gardens we have something for everyone.  

It's interesting that a city of 81000 would have something like this, but at the same time, it fits right in with Peterborough. 

In the future, my wallet card posts will likely be part of an "Adventures in Bus Driving" series, as that is the main time I do any travelling anymore.
