The zoo

I am very grateful this week for a few spare hours and for being a zoo friend. I am a regular at the zoo and for ages I've wanted to go by myself, without children.
 So, on Wednesday I went. 



It is such a great place. I was only there for an hour but it was nice to stop and take some photos. 
Nice to look around at my own pace. Nice to be by myself.
When I go with James we seem to spend most of our of time looking at sheep, eating lollies and riding on the sky safari. (which is fun too!) Nice to do something different.

Being grateful with Maxabella.

  1. Have to say, my 4 rather like the petting zoo too, sheep, goats, ducks, seriously, why when there are lions, tigers, giraffes & elephants?? Love that zebra shot, he's so fluffly & lovely. Have a beautiful weekend, love Posie

  3. I love the zoo. It's been a while since we've been as we live a good three hours out of the city. However, your photos have inspired me to plan a zoo weekend away in spring!

    Checking you out from Grateful Linky at Maxabella Loves.

  5. What a lovely thing to do by yourself, Leanne. Your pics are awesome (probably the result of being able to take your time, right!) Cheers to spending time alone, I say. x

  9. your pictures are great! I don't have a zoo close by but I often enjoy taking myself on coffee dates to obscure places just by myself. it's healthy to spend time alone I thin. the pictures are amazing. x
