A trip to the zoo

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.

The carousel

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?

I LOVE peacocks! My grandma used to raise them when I was little.
