A Cold Day Out (and a little moan)

Tuesday, 25th March 2014 at 7:45 am 2 comments

Mr MB has the week off work, so we’ll be out and about for the next few days. We visited Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm but really should’ve picked another day – it was freezing! 6°c and very windy. I tried hard to relax but my muscles tensed up in the cold and the sciatica kicked in. I WAS NOT going to miss out on seeing anything so I limped on pathetically 😀 The animals weren’t keen on the weather either – they’d pop outside for a quick walk then disappear back in. I didn’t take many photos, it was difficult to get a good picture inside. Then the camera batteries died, the spares were in the car and it seemed such a long way back to the car park.

They have a new elephant, Buta. I thought she looked a bit sad and lonely, til it was explained to me that she was napping! It looks like she’s stuck inside but she’s really not, the gates were all open and she can wander onto a huge grassy area and some woodland if she feels like it. The gates and fencing made me think of Jurassic Park 😀

I think this font is way too small.  I usually type in OpenOffice using Verdana font, then copy and paste on to here.  But it converts to this font now.  Also there’s no option to open photos in a new tab or window.  Gggrrrrrrr.

Edited – I’ve solved the font problem (I’ve altered the text at the top of the post), I needed to throw in a bit of HMTL.  Still can’t solve the photo problem though.

Edited again! – I’ve just found out the new way to set images opening in a new window.  Insert the image into your post, click on it and click the insert/edit link button.  Tick the box to open in a new window/tab, then update.  Bet you all knew this already didn’t you 😀

      Thanks. The elephant was funny, every couple of minutes she’d shift her weight to the other leg and cross them the other way 😀 I wish the weather had been warmer, it would be great to have photos of the animals out in the sunshine.
