Sunday Round-up of Photos

I’m at the far end of the weekend, and I’m in relax mode (jarmies are on, coffee sitting next to me, music playing) before another busy week starts.
This week I’ve been busy out and about taking photos and knowing how many of my readers love to see where I live, share them with you. Β For those who don’t already follow my other blog (and therefore know what I’ve been doing already) clicking on each picture will take you to the associated post.
Hope you enjoy them, I had lots of fun getting them, and as is usual took more than enough, these are just the best ones.

Off to the Zoo

~sigh~ where do I start?
It’s been such a long day and I really have more to do, but (a decent) sleep ready to rise early for market will have to take precedence.
After a slightly rushed start this morning we headed off to visit ZooDoo. A small zoo north east of Hobart. It is more a zoo park than traditional zoo but they have an ok variety of animals and are knowledgable about everything they have.
Believe it or not, (actually I see its not that hard to believe it,) some kids have never seen farm animals, so there is a menagerie of those wandering around the park – chickens, geese, sheep and goats.
There are the usual Aussie animals, koalas, a wombat, small kangaroos, emus, parrots, galahs, a trolling cockatoo (yes I’ll tell you about him soon enough), a petting zoo and the like – yes, and several Tassie Devils.

We arrived right on time to jump on their ZooDoo Safari bus and head into the paddocks to feed the emu, ostriches, llama, alpacas and Camels.
Then there was the feeding of the lions, meerkats, visit the reptiles and then feed the Devils.
After that we were on our own so spent the time wandering and taking pictures.

Back to the beginning, at 8.30 this morning. All was going good until we got, oh about, half an hour up the road and dropped the eldest at work. Uh-oh. I had left my spare camera battery at home. It doesn’t normally go flat very quickly but I like it as a safety net, particular as I like to take huge amounts of pictures.
I figured I would just play it safe and not go overboard. Haha, yeah I actually thought that and was able to behave myself till about the last half hour when I just let it rip. And then the battery died.

We left and went for lunch around 12ish, stopping for a picnic (it was outside, so a picnic it was) at Richmond, ten minutes down the road, and sat near the river.

On returning home, about 2.30, I set about doing the things I needed for tomorrow’s market and dinner before picking up the eldest. And as I write this, 10pm, I still haven’t looked at the pictures. And at last count there are over 200 of the suckers. (Am i stupidly patient and controlled??) Some I definitely know are not worth keeping.
I was very good today, and only used the manual mode on the camera, so I’m hoping, fingers crossed, there are more good than bad.

Once I sort the pictures out, here will be several posts on the trip, and a few select animal specific posts on the other blog as well. One of the first will be a post just for the Tassie Devil.

Now to find a quick picture or two to break up the words – once you arrive here, this will be nonsense, but hey, it’s late, I’m tired, so whatever. (It just took 20 mins to get 219 pictures not the iPad, am now really tired)

Hope you have a great weekend,
