We had a splendid day out yesterday with our six year old grandson. We returned to Folly Farm www.folly–farm.co.uk to revisit the penguins and to see first hand how the lions are settling in!
First though our grandson proved a dab hand at milking the goat!
Following on from the goats we entered the vintage fairground area- one of my favourite places – especially seeing Muffin the Mule!
I remembered seeing monster steam road rollers as a child trundling along the road and being late for school as I was fascinated by the noise, size and smell of these amazing vehicles.
Who else recalls screaming as the Waltzers whizzed round and screaming even louder if you managed to dob the waltzer with your pop star on the front…I do!
At last we arrived at the penguin enclosure and they all were as smartly dressed as ever and enjoying the admiration of all the onlookers.
Giraffes in the middle of the Welsh countryside-brilliant!
At last- there they were in their vast enclosure a pride of lions….and the male lion did indeed look extremely proud and living up to his name as the King of the jungle!
love the teeth!
On returning home after a drive of less than one and a half hours we discovered that two male and one female Mallard ducks had taken residency on our pond much to the annoyance of our two resident moorhens!
Our very own ‘lion look alike’ Rufus is growing up very quickly into a large kitten in fact larger than Holly! Tomorrow he is having his first injection!
