Mogo Zoo

 How amazing was Mogo Zoo, so enjoyed my time there and saw some of the most incredible, cute, and downright scarey animals.

Started with this very sleepy Bengal Tiger, look at the size of those paws.
 It was quite a warm day and some of the animals were really feeling the heat, this little one was out for the count.
Because all the animals are in cages, were I could I managed to get my camera through the links to get some pretty cool pics.
I did have a pic of this big boy and his lady "together" may have to put that up another time.
This tiger really unnerved me while I was taking his pic, his eyes were staring straight at me, didn't look away, very freaky.
This little Red Panda was a bit more active and what a sweet little face.
The pygmy Marmosets are without double the tiniest little monkeys I have ever seen, omg they are so gorgeous.
My all time fav critter at the Zoo are the Meerkats, I had hoped to do an encounter with them but, unfortunately got there too late, but hey something to look forward to next time.
Small clawed Otters, very busy little creatures always on the move.
One of the most incredible creatures, the white Lion, they are totally extinct in the wild, the Zoo have at least 4 that I saw, truly magnificent.
Daddy Giraffe, Mum and bub were moving around to much to take pics, but Dad was just standing around having a chew.
How weird is it to see a giraffe beside a gum tree!!!!
Little poser, love this pic
It's not easy being green, unless you are a rather large Iguana.












    Last pic of the little pygmy Marmoset, they were in an enclosure behind glass, so that made the pic taking a tad difficult.

My South Coast Escape

Wow what an amazing time I am having so far, been in Kiama for two and a half days now, so not looking forward to when I have to leave.

Started the trip by visiting my oldest and dearest friend Anne in Goulburn, it has been two years since I saw her last so we had a really lovely time. The view from her back yard is really lovely, at night you can see the lights of the city.



Drove down to Fitzroy Falls from her place, only took an hour to get there, the last time I was there it was in a drought and hardly any water was over the falls, wow what a difference now.

some cool fungi







Japanese tourist took this shot of me after I took one of his group.


lots of walking, stairs, mud, fun

played around with hipstamatic on my iphone and got some pretty awesome effects, this is one of the twin falls.


Got to Kiama at about  2ish, really busy as there was the Jazz and Blues festival on, so people everywhere, this was my first pic of the ocean, taken near the harbour.

Heaps more to add but it will have to wait for another couple of days, see you all soon hugs and love xo
