I visited Colchester Zoo with some friends at the weekend and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I’m a little unsure of my feelings about zoos, but it was clean, well kept and all the animals looked very healthy with lots of space. Aside from that, the kids absolutely loved it and it’s unlikely my son is ever going to see a lion, an elephant or a giraffe in wild. His face when he saw these animals, that up to that point he’d only seen in books, was an absolute picture.
Oh, and I got a few pictures I’m quite pleased with.
