A trip to the zoo.......

In the last week or 2 we went to the zoo..............it is a wonderful open plain zoo and the animals roam around in there areas - lots of great grasses like these.........some even had pink tinges...........very pretty floating in the breeze..........


Our favourite Aussie icon..............koala..........



Ibis.........amazing rookeys up in the trees...........they could go anywhere but stay here at the zoo.........


Meerkats - my favourite - very inquisitive

so pretty.........a peacock wandering around the ground.....


so many animals I collaged some pics so I could share more ..........


Asian elephant on the left (small ears) and African on the right -the kids say their ears are the shape of Africa..........


most displays don't have a big obvious fence in front of them................



my favourites the otters - this is a new display since I was last at the zoo..........



muncing away...........



I take these pics as if I have none of these roos at my place ...............lol...........I have lots and lots of roos roaming around my farm.............this guy decided to get up

I did well..............you can drive, ride a bike or just walk around the zoo..........well I choose to walk around and I did it, I made it, it is 6km without wandering off the track into smaller displays.........I was footsore by the time I got back to the start...............I do think it was easier walking around............heaps of people ride bikes (then have them to hire) and the people that weren't used to riding looked pretty stuff by the end....lol............

Until I can find some more sewing time enjoy the zoo...............

.........take care.............

  3. Well now, that brought back some memories. Took my 2 younger kids there with a gf and her 3 kids years ago. Started out by walking, uuuugh, sore feet, ended up with one of those cart thingies. Thanks for the photo's.

  12. It's that classic saying, "You never appreciate what you have". It's so long since we have been out there, I haven't seen the otters either. Love your photos, I'm sure some of those will end up on those beautiful cards your doing.

  18. Great photos. But won't show them to my daughter the zoo keeper because she would be hightailing over there to seek employment. What a beautiful place!
