Newquay Zoo

We decided to stay close to ‘home’ this morning with a visit to the Newquay Zoo. The sun was shining as it has been ever since we arrived.
It has been a long time since I visited a zoo, I am far more used to visiting the Safari Park where animals have large areas to roam, it was sad to see the larger animals in such confined spaces but they all looked healthy and well cared for.
Some of my favourites were the tiny frogs and pretty birds.

Every time I tried to take a photo Mr Owl turned his head, patience won the day.

Penguins at play

Mr Lion had two wives in the cage with him

This Lynx looked so healthy

Show off!

Mr Deer also had two ladies with him

Not sure what these were called, Worty Pigs I think 

The Japanese section

Our tickets are valid for a free return all week so we may go back, there was so much to see.

On the way back to the hotel we stopped to pick up a couple of things from Aldi and the view from the car park was just breath taking.
It was so nice to see a group of school children in their wetsuits learning to surf, something you could not even dream about when I was at school!
