Protesting Animal Captivity ~ Weekend in Review

By Laura @BEBookworm

I had a nice long weekend of protesting animal captivity!

2012-05-19 08.24.54First though, I started the weekend with a little recipe testing for Cupcakes and Kale. This pasta dish was delicious!

Protesting Animal CaptivityOn Saturday, a few friends and I woke up WAY too early to catch a bus from Toronto to Niagara Falls for the March on Marineland, organized by Marineland Animal Defense.

We blocked traffic at some spots. This bus was headed to Marineland. Boo!

2012-05-23 01.41.53The protesting continued when we got there. Honestly though, I was so exhausted I just wanted to SIT and EAT, so that’s what I did. On the ride back to TO, most of us zonked out right away.

Post-protest pizza (from Magic Oven) is 10 times as good as regular pizza, I swear.

I got a M.A.D. t-shirt while I was there and someone gave me a Save Smooshi mug.

No pictures, but Sunday I went to Green Earth for a late lunch then caught The Grand Budapest Hotel at Rainbow Cinema with Marissa. Great film. I love Wes Anderson’s films so much.

2012-05-25 01.21.21I modified my sign from the Marineland protest and switched it from a photo of an orca to one from Ripley’s Aquarium.

Hope you had a good weekend!
