We decided to beat a different path and head to the zoo on a chilly day. It was great to have the place mostly to ourselves.
Peanguins and puffins
A wild peacock
We were given quite an unexpected treat when we stumbled into a courtship ritual.
A peacock mating dance
The plumage was incredible! The dance went on for a good 20 minutes. Alas, the male stumbled and was rebuffed by the female. Probably best for a two year old's eyes anyway, eh?
