It was a sunny Wednesday in April so Markie took the bold decision to skip work and head to Chester Zoo with family in tow.
Well they were in the back if the car but you get the idea.
Chester Zoo had really evolved since the elder Keatings last went there in the 80s. They have taken great pains to improve the displays, the animal environments and their ecological impact.
The result is a well thought out space in which the animals have the best time possible, subject to specific circumstance. Certainly the size of the cages and design attempt to mimic more natural environments.
The kids loved it. Though I think they loved the monorail and the slide just as much so parents probably had a better time.
Anyway on to the images.
