Friday 31st October 2014

We made an early start , passed various view points then visited Cedar Falls , unfortunately the falls had been switched off.

Australia Zoo, legacy of the great Steve Irwin our destination for the day.
Our first Koala..appeared to be hanging up in storage.

The Croc & bird show at noon, showcased some spectacular birds including parrots & a mighty condor with a 3 m wingspan.

Mossman , a 380 lb croc showed off his massive jaws & agility beneath the water.

Ian achieved his ambition of petting a kangaroo.

Finally the tiger enclosure, we just missed the presentation by the keepers, but while the men chatted the tigers nuzzled & enjoyed having their ears tickled.

45 minutes later we arrived with Annette & Ken..
I took the grand tour of their lovely home & made myself comfortable in the 5 star guest suite!

Tommy & Will joined us for a BBQ dinner before their social duties called them away.
Before bed we Skype'd Hollie she assures us the house is still standing & the dog hasn't been claimed by the RSPCA. We enjoyed a few glasses of wine & a good catch up, hard to believe its a full 7 yrs since we were all together.

Looking forward to tomorrow

Goodnight reader xx
