Labbit Travels: San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences







Today was a day of fun at the California Academy of Sciences, located in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. Pipkin and Domo took to the stage at the Music Concourse early in the morning and enjoyed the deserted park benches and pruned elms.



You definitely need to give yourself an entire day to enjoy everything at the Academy of Sciences, because there is an aquarium, a planetarium, a natural history museum, a 4-story rainforest and a rooftop garden to explore.
It's a busy place, even on a weekday first thing in the morning, so Pipkin made a point to head up to the roof before it got too crowded. Neat, isn't it? The roof is a 2.5 acre green space with 7 humps representing the hilly terrain of San Francisco. Only bad part is...
siiiiiiigh.
...Pipkin wasn't allowed to hop on the green stuff. Too bad really. Hoomans would not tread so lightly, but Pip's a labbit. They know how to leave a small footprint in the wild. Alas, he respected the Academy's policy and wistfully admired the rolling fields. 
Naturally, labbits stay out of the aquariums. Labbits are not fond of swimming. But they do admire the fish, which are plentiful in the Academy's large aquarium. Pipkin could watch the tropical fish and the sharks all day. 
From the bottom of the aquarium, you can look up and see where Pipkin started his day at the Academy. Recognize those round windows? Pretty neat stuff!
