Today my daughter & I went to the Melbourne Zoo with my four grandchildren. The highlight was the baby elephant Mali shown here with her mother Dokkoon.
She is so sweet and attracts huge crowds at the zoo and as today was the beginning of the second week of the school holidays and the first really fine day, there were thousands of people at the zoo. We have a great elephant display where visitors can watch the elephants being walked around their compound & can watch them at play in their own swimming pool.
This male elephant decided to hide behind this tree trunk. Very funny really.
We also saw the giraffes, babboons, and a pygmy hippopotamus.
Yesterday we had a family lunch with our 4 grandchildren & 5 great nieces and nephews, and their parents. It was a lovely day with lots of food and chat. Two of the boys had birthdays during the past week so we had cakes and candles as well.
