took a trip to Southwicks Zoo. It’s more like a farm than zoo where you can get up close and personal with the animals.
we walked right next to their deer in a walkway through a wooded area where you can feed and pet them and their little ones. these guys are pretty smart, they hang around the food dispenser and collect the crumbs that drop to the ground. feeding them was funny, their hot sticky tongues tickle when they lick your hand and they are so beautiful and gentle too. it was pretty cool being this close to them. Tommie loved the pet-place and being surrounded by baby goats and piglets. he loves animals and had no fear of petting them and even tried to pick some up.
we cycled the cape cod canal trail. a lovely flat cycle trail along the cape cod canal. the weather was perfect and the sea breeze kept us cool as we cycled. we were lucky enough to catch sight of some dolphins that entered the canal and we even got to cycle alongside them for bit. tommie loved this one because he had lots to watch from his bike seat. he pointed to the boats as they passed and was overjoyed to see the dolphins ( big fish ). even better is the fact that this trail ends at a beach so after our cycle we spent the afternoon on the sand.
the boys only left the water to eat and tommie stayed in his little pool for hours and investigated the little sea creatures on the shoreline. we stayed late, almost the last the leave. the work on the new house will just have to wait, especially while the sky is this blue.
hope your weekend was special too x
