What is summer without a trip to the zoo, right? Especially when you have one animal lover who wants to become a vet. For Anabel that was the best trip so far. Even though Fota Park is not exactly zoo, some claim it even better. There are many animals that Fota doesn’t have, like an elephant, a lion or a camel, but it does have plenty of others. And the best thing about it is that many animals run free around the park. So we met lemurs, peacocks, pelicans and even kangaroos sitting next to the path. Anabel seemed to find them all very fascinating. Rosie however was mostly interested in birds and kept looking for new feathers to her collection, and she did find quite few.
We happened to be there during mad scientist weekend where we learnt about magnets, watched amazing creations made of lego, and walked through huge inflatable digestive system. Anabel loves everything scientific nowadays and absorbs knowledge like a sponge so she was amazed.
