Today was a fairly simple day – slept in a bit, caught the Red CAT across town to collect a rental car, then drove to the Perth Zoo and spent the day there.
I’ll write more about Perth Zoo later, possibly on the ZooBeat Forums rather than here. I will post some photos in the gallery when I get around to processing them too.
Needless to say, we both really enjoyed Perth Zoo – it’s a very pretty zoo with well established gardens and lots of tall trees and grasses (bamboo everywhere !!). The Orang-utans (orangutangs) are a real treat at Perth Zoo, and they certainly didn’t disappoint today.
I must comment on the weather at this point – since we arrived on Tuesday (when it was a bit wet and drizzly), we have had increasingly beautiful days with great sunshine, mild temperatures and gentle breezes. We have been spoiled these last few days, and have really enjoyed the weather. I’m taking the time to mention this now, since the forecast does not look as good for the rest of our stay here in Perth, so I might not be so enthusiastic about it after tomorrow ! We did expect it to be cold and wet anyway (given it’s the middle of winter right now !!) – so we feel we have done really well to get so many lovely days as we have.
