Today, myself, G, E and P went to the zoo. We took the train from Cambridge and then walked along the canal to the zoo (it felt long and it was hot) but nice to be outside (it probably took us about 45 minutes). We had fast-track tickets for the zoo and so waked straight in through a special entrance. The zoo was busy with school parties but they moved quickly from exhibit to exhibit so there was room for the girls (and me) to get close to the enclosures.
London Zoo seems to have a programme of regeneration so every time we go there are new things. This time they have redone the tigers and the children's zoo! They are really thinking about animal enrichment.
We spent about 5 hours at the zoo - just when P was lagging and was fed up with animals we found the play area and a man-made play stream in the children's zoo and this revived her.
Highlights for the girls was the tiger, the Meerkats , the monkeys and the penguins.
