A Day at Paignton Zoo

We’ve just come back from the most amazing relaxing week in Devon. It seems like ages since we have had a proper family break and it was well needed! I’ll be writing lots of posts about what we got up to as we had so much fun!

One day we went to visit Paignton Zoo. We love visiting the zoo – the girls love learning about different animals and getting to see animals which we can’t see everyday is a real treat.

Some of the highlights for me were…

Seeing this beautiful peacock strutting around …

    Wow what beautiful photos- especially the one of the peacock, that’s amazing! You should enter it into a competition or something! It looks like you have had a lovely week in Devon, we went to the zoo last week in Bristol and we all had such a lovely time. x

    Sounds like the holiday was just what you all needed and a trip to the zoo something really special. I love the gorilla sleeping position protecting his privates there and the peacock capture is spot on,I really miss Percy our Peacock who was not careful enough when the local fox paid a visit! Thank you for sharing your day at the zoo with me on Country Kids.

    The gorillas were certainly performing better for you than when we were there a couple of weeks ago. The peacocks were show offs too. I got some amazing photos of them, although not so much of the other animals.

    A day at the zoo is always such a delight with children. Gorillas are fun to watch and that peacock does look stunning.
