A Day out at Paignton Zoo


On Saturday I headed down to Paignton in Devon to spend the day at Paignton Zoo with my brother and his family. We spent a lovely day wandering around the zoo on a beautiful November’s day. William was fascinated by the giraffes and elephant. The animals all looked happy and well cared for, except perhaps the elephant who looked a bit lonely. We ate at a restaurant on site where a peacock was running a muck – much to the delight of the children. When you have a look at the statistics of just how few of some of the most amazing creatures are left in the wild, you begin to realise just what an important role zoos will have to play in the survival of many species. A lovely day out, definitely recommended!
