Goin' to the zoo, zoo, zoo........You can come too, too, too

Getting away from blog challenges briefly, thought I would share our day at the zoo.
My husband is a member, and today members could take people in at half price, so Jennifer and I went with him for the day.  It was a bit rainy, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment.  Quite often it is better to go on days like today, as the animals are sometimes more active.  For instance, we saw 2 lions running around today, instead of them sleeping in the sun! (When I say running around, they were still in their compound, not running round the zoo!!)
First stop was the Elephant House, where a couple of them were out by the waterfall.

Next stop was the gorgeous Butterfly house, which today proved to be a bit of a problem.  It was, as always, very warm and humid, but because it was a lot cooler outside, when we went in our cameras kept steaming up, so we only managed to get a few pictures that were any good.

When you go to Chester Zoo, you just HAVE to go to the Jaguar house - brilliant.  There is quite often a Jaguar "posing" on top of the waterfall, but today they were quite active.

Next we found the Sea Lions.  There were only a few, but they were good to watch playing in the water.

 On to the Penguins.....................

There was a lot more, but I can't have you getting bored now, can I?
