Ever Wanted to Fly Like a Bird?

I have. And now I can! The San Diego Zoo recently began offering San Diego County’s only flying trapeze school. Held in the Zoo’s Camp Timbuktu campground, visitors will enjoy the sensation of flight as they take off from a high “perch” and swing through the trees. All “trapeze artists” will get a run through of safety guidelines and the basic take-off position. Then at the top, get ready to jump from the platform and fly through the air (receiving instructions every step of the way, thankfully).

Safety is their main concern, therefore there are a lot of safety and physical precautions; this isn’t for everyone. I’m looking forward to trying it. I just hope they don’t require spandex and sequins! That I don’t think I pull off!

The Trapeze High is only offered on Saturdays and Sundays and is very popular! Be sure to book in advance. Tell us, have you ever tried it?

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…
