Back when we were going through our immigration odyssey, we had spent time at the Henry Doorly Zoo in that city on a cold and windy February day and had thought it was an excellent zoo. Since we are members with the zoo in the urban jungle, one of our perks is a reduced rate to the Henry Doorly Zoo and so we thought Little Abbey would enjoy seeing a larger zoo. We were right.
We spent all morning and part of the afternoon walking around the zoo taking in the sights. I didn't take many pictures while there because I could never see the point. You end up with a picture of a animal obviously in captivity. Now if I had a picture of a lion out in the open, there would be a story to tell when showing the picture to someone but a picture of a lion laying on an artificial rock, surrounded by a moat, fence and a ring of people doesn't interest me much. That is why the only picture not of one of my family is of the side of their train station building which spoke to me as I waited for the train to start moving. That picture is at the top of this post.
After the zoo and famished, we hit a local place called Louie M's Burger Lust Cafe which as you can probably guess, it a place to order burgers. It had been recommended by a friend of ours and it didn't disappoint. I had the Avacado Bacon Cheddar burger seen below and it was very messy and tasty, just the way a good burger should be.
