Finally, some decent weather so that we could take Alex to Taronga Zoo. He slept for most of the ferry ride across Sydney’s magnificent harbour, waking in time to eat lunch. He was quite interested in the reptiles, like the Komodo dragon below.
The giraffes and zebras also took his fancy, but he was too tired to get excited by the elephants, despite the presence of calves Luk Chai and the very recently born “Mr Shuffles”.
I would think that he enjoyed the kids zoo most of all, not for the animals but for the running water to play in. He did giggle at daddy’s pig snorts and shout “wow!” as a seal raced by him as he peered into their tank.
After lugging him around on my back we had a very pleasant swim in our pool.
