We had a really lovely day. Of course a lot of the animals were sleeping midday, but we still managed to see a lot of them, even if they were sleeping!
|At least the kangaroos were active!|
We managed to time our visit pretty well for the koalas though, who woke up for their feedtime.
|Time for dinner!|
And then there's my absolute favourites, which were the meerkats. There were 2 adults and 2 youngsters. They had a cardboard box to play with/hide out in. And they were making the best of it. But even better, was one of the meerkats, which was standing stock still under a heatlamp. It was so cute!
|A cardboard box is a source of endless fascination|
|Well I certainly would, wouldn't you?!|
After the zoo (we were there for about 4 hours) we took a boat across the water and had dinner at Darling Harbour. And then finally back to my hotel for a glass of vino and then bed.
Today I had to get up at 4 am as I had a webinar about my book. I was invited to do this a while back and the timing wasn't the best for me. It was 8 pm in the UK, but here it was 5 and I thought I'd better get myself showered and dressed rather than being on webcam in my pj's!
It actually went a whole lot better than I expected and I'm really pleased I've done that now. I'd be very happy to do one again, which is just as well as I have an interview to do on Thursday. This one will be via Skype. Fascinated to see how that one goes.
So now it's goodbye Sydney and Perth here I come. I've got 4 days there with my songwriting pal, Jim and his family, and he's got his cd launch happening on Friday, so that should be fun.
Looking forward to seeing a different side of Australia... and it really is a different side as it's a 5 hour flight and a 2 hour time difference! I'll be coming back to Sydney on Sunday morning ready for 2 action packed final days in Australia before I head back to Thailand and a bit more work.
