Sunday Sevens #209 10/11/19

Hello, another week gone by and all of a sudden (if the TV executives & supermarket bosses would have you believe it) Christmas is round the corner… not thinking about that just yet! Here’s this week’s Sunday Sevens:

Wildlife Park open day

On Sunday, I took the Little Postcards along to the Alameda Wildlife and Conservation Park in the Alameda Botanical Gardena. This little ‘zoo’ as we used to call it was important to us when we first moved to Gibraltar 10 years ago with just 2 Little Postcards. We lived across the road from the gardens and they became our garden replacement after moving from our home in the UK with our own garden.

The wildlife park is in a very small corner of the gardens and is a sanctuary for animals which have been seized from boats by customs and also houses a few of the problematic native apes who have found themselves outside of the Upper Rock ape community.

The open day was to raise funds and awareness for the work the park carries out and was a huge success if the number of families there was anything to go by.

We all fell for the African Grey parrots who had a lovely chirpy conversation going on with themselves, the other birds, the apes next door and visitors too!

Blue skies are back again!

We had a rather wet weekend last weekend, although nowhere near as bad as the weather the UK has experienced this week. By Tuesday the blue skies were back again.

What a scorcher

By Wednesday morning, this is the weather we were having, it was so hot on the Eastside, although it was grey and blustery around the other side of the Rock! Gibraltar has a very complex weather system…

Wonky carrots

I got quite a shock when I pulled this carrot out of the bag! Diamond, our bunny liked it nonetheless.

Here comes the rain again

Just look at those grey clouds… the rain came back…

Seagulls galore

The noise from these roosting seagulls was terrific!

Sparkly lights across the Strait

Do you see those lights over the water? That’s Morocco. It looked so close on Friday night as I was driving past Europa Point.

And that brings this week’s Sunday Sevens to a close. Thanks for stopping by!
