Lovely but hot hot hot!!!

 

Spend a great day at Twycross Zoo yesterday with Cameron and Joe – it was pretty hot compared with the dreadful weather we’ve recently had.  Cameron had a wonderful time he got to ride the train and some sort of new ‘Bug’ ride they’ve installed over the past few weeks.

We managed to find a really lovely shady picnic table with  gentle breeze wafting over us at lunch time so we could eat and drink in comfort.

They  are doing a lot of revamping of the next 6-12 months extending the penguin pool, making a brand new owl area & Coyote enclosure and soon there will be a lion & tiger enclosure.  Sadly since we last went both sea lions have died.

We did have a delicious ice cream from the cafe near to the Penguins whilst Cameron had a Smarty Pop one to keep us a bit cool.

When we got home Cameron and I had to content ourselves with cooling off in the paddling pool as we don’t have a swimming pool Sad smile
