Taronga Zoo

8th October

sunny 32 °C

We were up again early today, well we had had 15 Hours sleep. We Headed out early into Sydney Centre, we went on the bus this time and passed some really cute places, one was called Paddington, with a chip-shop named 'a fish named paddo' which we thought was kool. We reached the city and headed to wharf 2, we'd decided to go to the zoo today (something me and ashley had been excited about since we knew we were coming to Sydney) and had to get a ferry to get there. We were early for the ferry so we decided to head to the Opera House for a close up look. Ashleys discovered that on the travellerspoint website they 'feature' a photo from a persons travels each day, and now he's decided its his mission to get one of his pictures featured. So when i started to look around the little market and i turned around to find ashley was missing i thought i knew where he would be. Sure enough he was up the steps next to the opera house dangling over the railings with his camara trying to get a winning picture... i think he still has some way to go, but since he found out he hasnt put his camara away just incase there was a picture which would win.
We got on the ferry and headed over to Toronga Zoo, which turned out to be the best zoo we'd ever been too! It had soo many animals, our favourites giraffes and Bears, and some we hadnt seen before, like a 'fishing cat', or a snow leopard. They also had some animals which were pretty boring, like chickens and ducks...we skipped them! We saw a seal show, which was good. We heard a talk on Penguins, who were soo cute, tiny ones!
We went on a sky safari, we had italian food in the food market, we saw Koalas and Wombats and Kangaroos... But Our Favourite was by far the Meerkats, who were just so funny...
After that we also paid to feed the Giraffes and have our picture taken, it was sooo good, Ashley got Giraffe Slaver all over his hand and the Giraffes started fighting over our carrots. This was good because my favourite animal is the giraffe, so yer, was ace!!
By about 3 O'clock we'd seen all the animals and so decided to head home, the weather had now changed from around 32 degrees to gail force winds (17 degrees) so we were happy to head home.
When we got home ashley cooked (he cooks to avoid washing up, because we take it in turns, i've recently figured out!) we had fish, mash and veg, which reminded us of home, but it was pretty difficult on one hob, was very good though. Ashley watched a cartoon Marathon after tea and i headed to bed, i was nervous about starting work tomorro! But finally we were on Aussie Time! Yey! Sigh of Relief! x
