While we're camping we have an extra special event we can go to, The Wild Felid Advocacy Center on Harstine Island (near Shelton). Where do big cats go when they are rescued from a domestic situation or a zoo can no longer keep them? Captive wild cats cannot be returned to the wild. So every type of cat, from lions to tiny Gordon's cats, have found their way to Harstine Island.
We will get a private tour of the facility at 10 a.m., where you will learn about each breed and take photos to your heart's content. The cost for the tour is $12 per person, payable in cash only. (You can report it as a donation for tax purposes.)
After the tour, we will head back to Jarrell Cove State Park for a picnic lunch. I have invited the Peninsula Boomer Zoomers Group to join us for lunch around noonish. They will be taking the same tour after our group, so we can compare notes about our experiences.
