So, we went to Marwell on Sunday. It was rainy and it was cold and it was windy. But the baby had a great time.
Periodically while walking down this *unused* track, Rafe shouted “TOO TOO!”
Of great interest were the Tigers, restlessly patrolling their area. Rafe was so enthralled he held me there with him (seriously- he blocked my legs and held my hand!) for 20 minutes watching these big cats. I momentarily wondered how our “topcat” at home would fare against this kitty…
We enjoyed seeing all the various animals, though I must admit they looked as miserable and cold as we felt.
This little guy was our favorite, we couldn’t help but stand and watch him for ages as he dashed around the enclosure and up and down the trees.
The otters were the most amusing, obviously feeling a bit in need of some female companionship, they were trying their damndest to get a glimpse of the girls next door.
The kids had a great time,too. Rafe was sleeping so we got a new shot of Dev and Livvy in front of the hippo. A similar shot from 2 years ago has them sitting on top with Rafe in front.
Happy Birthday, Rafe. I only wish that you could remember what a great time you had in twenty years.
