Where I stayed
Adjacent to the gardens we found a small zoo (a menagerie) that specialised in South American fauna (including llama, vicuna, rhea, macaws, patagonian hares, agouti and capybara), owls, pheasants, cranes, vultures and ducjs, ibex, gaur, anoa, yak and watusi. Of course Austin had great fun with the camera while Joy had soon had enough of waiting for him. Nevertheless, we both enjoyed the experience, though we were foot sore by the time we walked home.
Out for tea at Subway and a short walk to the Town Hall with its fountains and back over the bridges to watch the final of the snooker championship. We swapped rooms toady for a bigger bathroom and bed but no longer have the view of the large chestnut tree with its pigeons.
