Finally! A beautiful weekend. I have been saving a visit to the Taronga Zoo for a sunny day and yesterday, I got it! After spending the a.m. on Skype with the fam, I jumped on the ferry to Circular Quay and then to Taronga Zoo. The zoo itself is situated on a big hill on a beautiful bay. The animal enclosures are situated on a series of levels on the hill…I think there are five. As far as the animals themselves, I think I was spoiled by having gone to Steve Irwin’s place on a previous visit to Australia. While there was a pretty good variety of Australian indigenous animals, there weren’t many of them and they were mainly lethargic (enjoying the warm day?) and lots more fences and bars between me and them than one sees at Irwin’s place.
All in all, a lovely day. I have included a couple pics from the way back, as well, including some aborigines that hang out at the Circular Quay, making a few bucks from the tourists.
Looking forward to a nice, warm, sunny week for a change 🙂
