Indy’s on Easter holidays, which is 2 weeks off, and I’ve basically been convinced it’s the weekend since the 8th of April.
Strangely enough, it has not been the weekend since the 8th of April, which has led to some deep confusion on my part. I suppose I’ll get back in the swing of things when school starts up again, but this bodes ill for my brain over summer vacation.
We went down to Fota Island for a day, and I took some pictures.
Indy was thrilled beyond comprehension to see REAL! CHEETAHS!
He raced the cheetah. The cheetah chased him, in a desultory fashion. :)
Just some pretty flowers.
The white-handed gibbons were in fine form, giving out to one another…
Indy making a wish at the wishing well. (He wished Fota Island would have 130 cheetahs. They apparently ALREADY have THIRTY-NINE!)
These lovely little creatures are basically giant South American guinea pigs, although they look more like rabbits crossed with antelope. Dublin Zoo and Fota Island, where this was taken, has quite a few of them, and at Fota they’re totally free-range. They’re very very shy and charming, and I spent a lot of time at Fota sneaking up on them to take pictures. More pictures than might be strictly necessary, really. I have a lot of mara pics. :)
