Day on the harbour
« on: November 26, 2013, 10:25:48 PM »
With the money I received for my recent 40th birthday I surprised my 8 year old Son with a trip to Sydney Harbour and a really great Zoo there. His first time on jet and first time interstate.

The weather was very kind to us and it was a wonderful day together. Now I'm even further behind with my job, but it was well worth the extra time I need to put in.

Some pics:







Go on up you baldhead.

Love the skyline in the pics.  What was you and your son's favorite animals at the zoo?  My kids go crazy for penguins and monkeys, I can't pull them away.
Here read a book.  It's free.

Thanks for sharing, magic. It looks like time well spent, indeed.

I didn't have a clear favourite, but Miles was a huge fan of the Snow Leopard (he bought one from the gift shop) and the giant Anaconda.

If you look beside the opera house in the middle photo you'll see a huge cruise ship - this meant the Zoo was filled with loud and enthusiastic American tourists. ("Look there Stan! That Kangaroo's got a Joey! Oh my Gawd!!"

It added to the general atmosphere.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

Everything else should be secondary when you have a child to give memories too.
