Australia Zoo & Dreamworld

Well been a couple of days since I last wrote, busy days, stinking bloody hot days but good days as well.

Yesterday (Sunday) we went to Australia Zoo and I was able to hire a motorised scooter to get around the zoo and that was great, so much easier for me and also for Tim and Jessica. Although the fact that Tim woke us up at 6am was a bit much his phone didn't reset for Queensland time and he thought it was 7am

Granted I was unable to go on the shuttle around the zoo but that was ok, I managed to see about 70% of the zoo then we broke for lunch and after lunch I suggested that the others take the shuttle to the other parts and I would go through the shops and just wait for them. So while they did that I waited in air conditioned comfort. Jessica was surprised that we spent 7hrs at the zoo.

Today saw us go to Dreamworld another long day we arrived around 10.30am but it was near 11am by the time we got in hired the wheelchair and set off. We left at 5pm when they were closing up, however, there was a part we didn't get to, so Tim and I decided to go back tomorrow with Jessica & Leo of course.

Today is Leo's birthday he is now 10yrs old and he seems to have had a good day and was excited with all his presents and he was somewhat spoilt, this whole trip was for his birthday, so both papa and I wanted him to have a good day.

Now I am going to post this and go and have a shower and freshen up before going to bed, last night I was so exhausted I didn't have a shower just a wash in the van and Jessica went on and on about me not having one but I didn't care, I was too exhausted to care.

Hi, Jo-Anne!

Happy 10th birthday to Leo!

Most Americans are currently enduring a brutal January cold snap, making it easy to forget that in Australia the temperature rises and gets downright hot as you travel farther north. I love the zoo and have visited quite a few. Tell me, dear friend, does the Australia Zoo have any roos? :)

Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Jo-Anne!

Years ago there were no showers just a bath tub in front of the fire where everyone took their turn in the same water so I'm told.
Seems you are having a wonderful time in south east Queensland.
Happy Birthday to Leo.

What a wonderful birthday present!
I always love zoos even if I feel badly for the animals. Some zoos are much better places for them than others. :)

That was a trip I would love to be on . One of my boys has been to your Country...Melborne..but it is a wish of mine as well. Are you interested at all in astronomy? Only meaning examining the heavens above you. My son loved seeing the Southern Cross while he was there and in New Zealand. A chance to see something we can never see here in this part of the hemisphere. He laid on his back in cold cold New Zealand and got some great pictures of the southern skies over your part of the world. Along with much else of course. :-)
