Sunny,warm Twycross zoo

The day began sunny and warm whilst Lynne and friend were delivered to their spa near Melton Mowbray. However, by the time my daughter and I arrived at Twycross zoo the weather had taken a turn for the worst, dropping temperatures several degrees whilst threatening showers. The zoo was a pleasant surprise, much better than I remembered from childhood, being well laid-out and featuring a wide range of endangered species in good enclosures. The Asian elephants had a cute baby, as did the orang utans and gorilla's. The zoo is obviously aimed at "younger customers", but not at the expense  of the "older ones ". After a pleasant fish and chip lunch we left for the the spa to return the well-refreshed ladies home. A pleasant day all round.
