Took Erika to London Zoo, as a combined treat for her half birthday earlier this week, and my birthday yesterday.
London March 2014
Erika looking chirpy at breakfast.
On arrival at London Zoo.
Erika in the aquarium.
I'm eating a "tiffin" as a late breakfast here. Erika is keeping me company.
Erika looking at the tiger.
Can you roar like a tiger?
Erika wasn't keen to sit on the tiger to have her picture taken.
So instead I leant on it and held her.
She still looks a bit unsure about it.
...and this tiger too!
Looking at some camels.
Yet another tiger statue!
Me, Erika and a camel.
Erika having her lunch.
The penguin pool - Erika had fallen asleep by this time so we decided to come back later.
Strangely there's a lift that goes down into the rainforest area. Quite bizarre to see rainforest through a window in a lift!
Erika still dozing.
Some kind of warthog.
Looks like this one has two heads.
This animal was called Daphne. I forget the species.
Trying to get a picture of me and Erika with the giraffe behind.
Interesting splayed front legs here.
Erika having an afternoon snack.
Me, Erika and some zebras.
We made sure Erika got to see the penguins before leaving the zoo - it happened to be feeding time too.
The three of us by the penguin pool.
In Regent's Park on the way back now - we thought we'd give Erika a chance to have a bit of a run about.
Erika on my shoulders.
...and on Chie's shoulders!
Couldn't resist some pictures with the cherry blossom!
Really like this one.
