A Good Thing

    It's a good thing my family went to the zoo yesterday, because the weather has been positively bipolar today.
    The Melbourne Zoo is a massive place and we couldn't see every animal exhibit. We did see the elephant, meerkats, various monkey species, a red panda, butterflies, spiders [ick!], pelicans, ducks, tigers and a peacock.
    We ate lunch at the zoo bistro - I ate my first ever BLT [and am completely hooked on this sandwich. This was followed by scones with cream and jam [mmmm].
    We finished with a walk through a Japanese inspired garden and a look around the souvenir shop. Gwen came out with a large plush elephant, which she bopped her poor Dad over the head with when he carried her on his shoulders.
