Post No. 84 - We went to the Zoo!

We had a fairly busy week and were happy when the weekend arrived! Yesterday we had a fairly lazy day sorting some stuff out around the house and we rented a DVD to watch last night - The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Graeme, having previously read the book, was unimpressed. I didn't know any better!

Today, the weather looked good so we headed down to Wellington in the car to visit the zoo! We had been thinking about going for a while and it was worth the 2 hour drive to get there. It helps that the drive is a beautiful one. First you travel alongside the mountain range, then along the coast - great views!
So we saw lions and giraffes and meerkats (all pictured). Also red pandas, chameleons, cotton tailed tamarins, lemurs, kangaroos, emus, zebra, otters....the list goes on and on!
Hope you all had a good weekend too!
