Up the road, as they say in Ireland, there is a Zoo. But it is about 40 miles away, I don't drive, and I know however great the zoo make be, it ain't worth the walk. Time was also a factor. (That old chestnut!)
But a little closer to home is a safari park in Knowlsey and I did go there. So to say sorry I thought I would make it into a wee story about the zoo for a sit down and a Friday cuppa.
The other day, Big fella and I heard a whisper through the trees that the animals in the zoo had broken free and were roaming the local park! This was a opportunity not to be missed. We were going to the park. We decided it would best to drive there, as a zoo has many exotic animals that would not think twice of having a silly couple walking through the park as a tasty meal before going to check the swings and the slide.
So we drove to the park. All of a sudden,
As I looked through the trees I saw a lion chasing squirrels for tickling his nose with their tails.
We also saw two elephants going to what they called there "spa day" in the river where the swan and ducks live. Every Thursday afternoon, without fail.
As we drove around some more we saw a peacock running towards us shouting at me about taking pictures at a time where lions were roaming loose in a park, call somebody and were we crazy. A camel came to the front window and drearily asked about some sand, there was not enough sand.
Big fella suggested the Car park where some salt is kept for snow days and would that help? He muttered something along the lines of, it will have to do and off they went.
