We saw penguins. The raggy looking ones are in the process of malting their feathers, apparently they don't eat while they do this and it takes about a month!
Oh, my heart! They stayed like this, looking at each other for so long.
There is a series of these that are quite funny. In this section they have made it kind of like a theatre, with bench seats, to do shows with divers and feeding. Rob was sitting in the middle of the seating area, taking photos, and there were other people sitting all over. Violet started doing a big big poop. The thing to know about Rob is that if he's focused on doing or getting something, nothing can get in his way. If I'd walked over and told him she was doing number twos he would have made me go back and get a good picture anyway! So I didn't and i didn't want to shout it across the room so there are a bunch of photos where Violet is either straining or trying to wiggle out of my arms and my face goes from irritated to laughing, the more he takes. I'm afraid this was the best one!
I think once she has her first birthday we intend to buy annual passes to the children's farm, aquarium and zoo (which we haven't been to yet!) so that we can go whenever we like!
