Orana Park, Christchurch

I played Aunty Helen for a day and took Rebecca and Luke to Orana Park, Christchurch's zoo!! It was just a good excuse for ME to go on a fun day out and eat chips!!

Rebecca and Luke are the kids of our good friends Tanya and Richard. They moved here in November last year, from the UK, although Tanya is a returning Kiwi!

We had a great time - even if it DID decide to rain all day! Probably the ONLY day it rained in the whole of July too! At least it wasn't toooo cold....

Orana Park is actually pretty good, as far as zoo's go. I'm not a great fan of them myself, but at least this zoo had nice big paddocks and a more "natural" environment than, say, London zoo's moulded-cement enclosures.

We'll go back again in the summer when the Moorfields arrive - by then the extensive lion and tiger enclosures should be finished and, hopefully, the weather will have improved!!
