A Trip to the Zoo

 Katy was off yesterday and we took the girls to the zoo.  
The hippo area is probably one my least favorite places...but  Maddie likes it.  
We have some photos of her last year posing here. 

It is the one place where you can be sure to see the animal because it is enclosed in glass. 

We didn't spend a lot of time there yesterday, but I still like playing with my camera. 
It has a pretty good zoom for an inexpensive camera. 
Here is a wild boar.


A couple of spotted hyenas.

We only saw one elephant.  
We recently had a baby elephant born at the zoo.  
It is still too young for viewing.

We took a train ride.

They are lovely photos Brenda. You must have had a great day out.

Looks like your weather is much better than ours but I shouldn't complain. Hurricane's hardly happen here! However we don't get a lot of sun either. This week has been pretty bad, Lauren & I have had to content ourselves with playing board games, knitting, reading, watching some telly and baking. She loves making cup cakes!

Wonderful to have a day out with the family. I sometimes think it a pity that one of my daughters lives so far away in Australia. Next year I hope to see her and her children and partner again.
