All aboard to Blackpool Zoo


Last week we set off to explore the popular animal exhibits at Blackpool Zoo.


Visiting a zoo is a great experience and day out for everyone, and it can be very entertaining.  It certainly enhanced our resident’s knowledge about all the zoo animals and their rare species.


We particularly loved seeing the Gorilla Mountain exhibit - we got to see the big western lowland gorillas including Bukavu, a silverback and Milliki and her babies Meisie, Makari, Njema and Moanda.


We shared a lovely picnic and enjoyed ice creams in sunshine with the bird life all around us.  Andy named two of the birds Trevor and Derek!


We also took a small detour on the way home and we enjoyed a trip down the famous Blackpool promenade which bought back wonderful memories for everyone.


A fabulous day was had by all and we can't wait for our next outing!
