A day at the zoo

So my older sister and I took my niece Tilly for her first trip to the zoo … we told ourselves it was for her benefit but at 7 months old I’m pretty sure we enjoyed the experience more than her. However she did enjoy the ride on the small train that runs around the wildlife park.

I hope you enjoy a few photos from the trip … I had to edit these photos twice as my camera SD card corrupted. P.S. the Mongooses and Otters are my favourite!
