Monarto visit

A few months ago I joined a dear friend on a special outing - for those enduring Parkinson's Disease and/or Dementia - to South Australia's Monarto Zoo.
 
The Meerkats are so entertaining, as are the Chimpanzees.  (It was a cold Winter's day when we visited, and the Chimps were carrying around a pink bed quilt - when they weren't wearing it !)
 
 
 
(I've missed catching up with you all over the past month as my new computer had a serious "melt down".  Have also been heavily involved in supporting my dear friend and her husband these past few months as dementia progressed rapidly and it was necessary for her to move into permanent professional care - a devastating time for all. While clearly different from one's own home environment, her new home is bright, attractive and has lovely garden settings with water features which she enjoys and the carers have wonderful attitudes towards those for whom they are responsible).
 
Linking up with Camera Critters
 
Wishing you all a wonderful week with hopefully not too many pressures in the lead up to preparations for Christmas celebrations.

Meerkats are very cool animals.

I'm ambivalent about zoos - in theory I don't like them, in practice I always enjoy my visits! I hope your friend enjoyed her visit too.

Love the critters! I am sorry for your friend! We went thru the same with my father, it was not a happy time! I wish you friend all the best!

Similarly to John I have mixed feelings about zoos but when I go I do enjoy the photography and seeing animals at close quarters. You obviously did too Linda.

I really liked the photos of your trip to the zoo...lots of nature there. Thanks so much for visiting my blog after my long absence with leukemia.
