Toco Here We Come

When your friend randomly suggests a drive to Toco, what else can you say other than an emphatic YES! I’ve not been to Toco since I was a child, so I was eager to explore. I have one memory of being in Toco with my father carrying me out passed the deep waters to a shallow …

A Trip to the Zoo
