Half term and a cold day...


It's been a while since I've shared any photo's with you so I thought it really was about I did. Today we had our second ever visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster. It was bitter cold and I thought I wasn't going to get any photo's at all. Primarily because my hands turned to ice if I took my gloves off, but also because it was so busy when we got there and having 2 and 4 year old with us we went round to cries of "lets see something else..."


They have recently rescued a pride of 13 lions from a Romanian Zoo, but they are still in quarantine. You can't see them, but we did hear them. A lions roar certainly lets you know it's not a timid animal. The park is currently constructing an area for them and I think we'll be visiting again to see them. I have a thing about big cats, I like little one's as well mind.

This is somewhere I want to visit when the weather improves a bit, I didn't even know it was there until quite recently.
I saw the story of the lions on Look North and will definitely go and visit them when they are allowed into their new enclosure.
Your photos are lovely. Aren't the Meercats just so funny!!

FYI: The woodgrain stamp on my blog is a hero arts one. I got it from Crafts U love, but I am sure there will be other people who sell them too. xx
