Hubby and I trotted off to London Zoo to celebrate his birthday doing what we like best, animal watching. It is the main reason I developed a friendship with him in that he had a couple of whippets and we would go dog walking together, he with Pippa and Suki and I with my families big black golden retriever, border collie cross called Luke. In all the time we have been together I don’t think we have ever had a night without a furry heart beat for company, well apart from my first year in London on my own, which I eventually rectified.
We do love the Zoo, especially the penguins. They always seem so happy and in fine fettle. How could you not fall in love with these happy little fellows. Next we saw the new edition to the zoo, the lazy lions. They sleep for twenty hours a day apparently. A quick snap of a tiger and then a wander around to the gorillas, where one of them was outside, nibbling on a few branches. It was the first time I have seen one outside, so that was a real treat. A couple of snaps of us to remember our aged selves and then we wandered off into Camden for a late lunch, which was fabulous and the best Indian meal we have had in London.
