Today we went out to Front Royal for the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Center's annual festival, where in theory we could've seen the baby red pandas and some clouded leopards. Unfortunately we got there at 1:30, and the line for the panda/leopard enclosure looked like it was about 2 hours long (and they closed at 3). So instead we went to the bird house where we saw several Guam Kingfishers, a Bali Mynah, and what we were told was the only Mariana Crow left in the mainland US. (His name is Clint, he is still here because he tested positive for West Nile antibodies, he's 20, and he likes to have his head scratched.)

On the way home on 55, we tried the "turn at a random winery sign" approach, which took us to Barrel Oak in Delaplane, which is like a cross between a winery and a dog park. If you like lots of people and lots of dogs, this is the place to go. The wine is okay, some of the staff is wonderful, and it's not a bad way to kill an afternoon.
