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.
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.....................
