Melbourne Zoo

Female Low land Gorilla at Melbourne ZooA great day was had at Melbourne Zoo… can’t spend too much time blogging this week as family is visiting and I don’t want to appear anti-social… watch Flickr for photo updates from the Zoo.

Note to anyone planning on visiting the Zoo, I’d hold off for a while if you can. The price has gone up since we were last there, now $22 for adults (up from $18) and almost a quarter of the zoo was unavailable due to refurbishment… displays being upgraded or animals off display due to “them being affected by the noise of the building works”.

So while I’m sure they do have Tapier, after two visits I’m still yet to see it. We missed the Orangutans, Lemuers and some other animals.

We’re off to Ten Pin Bowling tomorrow, followed by dinner at Viva Zapatas in Williamstown.

1st Blog on Windows Mobile

David’s mum & dad arrived yesterday from Sydney.

They have opted to use the inflatable matress in our computer room.
In doing so we have no access to our computers until they wake.

@6:25 in the morning I’m already thinking it might not have been such a good idea.

So probably for the next week my blogging will be done on the little Ipaq 4700. Its browser is only showing me an input box 3 characters wide. Makes it somewhat hard to review what I have written so please forgive any big errors. Note to WordPress… we could do with a mobile interface.

Today we are off to the Melbourne Zoo. One of my favouri te places & somewhere David’s mum wanted to go.

Oh and for those who wanted to know, the sale is still on in Nth Fitzroy. David took his parents there yesterday.
