Chicago – Day Four

Not too early a start today as we had only set a timescale of 10:30 on the road but as usual we had to wait for Lewis but only by 5 minutes.

Off to Lincoln Park Zoo today which is the free zoo in the park at the north end of town. I asked Mrs C if we were going to drive to Forest Park as we did yesterday and catch the ‘L’ into town but she thought it would be easier to drive (for me that is!!)

So off we set, satnav guiding us safely until it sent me down the west side of the loop and off in the direction of the north end of town ????

Michele do you fancy driving – no dear you are doing fine was the reply!

We parked up at the zoo OK and off we set for our adventure. Monkeys, rhinos, birds, spiders are all on show but the one animal that captured all or hearts was the polar bear. He kept swimming by the below water observation point and seemed to be playing with the kids.

The baby gorilla was in playful mood too which the kids enjoyed, peeing on its mother’s head was a really delight to watch.

Elle was teasing the meerkats with their calling noise off YouTube which caused them to scatter but only to reappear busy looking for predators!

Then back to the car and home. Parking was $25 which compared to others zoos was cheap and especially as the entrance was free.

Friday big shop sorted before heading home to kick back with a couple of beers, Now listening to Elle, Josh and Kendra’ laughing away.

More tea cooked by Lewis Cleary – not to self he’s after something!

Post edited as I had more beers then I was going to, had to change the grammar and spelling!
