Tiwa, doing the scariest thing she's probably ever done. This was serious fun but Errr, I'm not trying that again anytime soon.
One of the besties
With my game face on, you wouldn't guess that I just took the scariest walk of my life, with my life flashing before me every millisecond!
Tiwa and I Laughing about God knows what. (Tiwa has got a beautiful soul.)
These coy fish were actually brought from Japan. Can you see just how beautiful they are? They even look very oriental.
Nicole: uncle Uyi no no no. No no no. No no no don't play with my iPad. (Nicole is so adorable and she cracked us up)
Parting ways at the car park... We were so exhausted but also very happy. Everyone says we should do this again. I for one agree, we had an amazing day.
We had frightful moments; walking on the 100 ft-long ramp 100 ft above ground and hearing croaks that weren't coming from frogs. Sharing scary stories while hoping to not be attacked by snakes or something even worse. (There's a crocodile pond but we couldn't get to that end).
We had unending moments of laughter, thanks to everybody, even the other visitors we got to interact with.
We had our serious moments; talking about work, career, money, goals and the way forward
Everyone munched on the delightful cupcakes (courtesy of Clare), and of course savory small chops, cold drinks (to soothe our parched throats after the hikes and climbs), and then while leaving we split the TTB cake in large chunks for each one of us.
We had fun feeding the monkeys puffpuff, cakes and icing. those animals are a riot!
We visited with the tortoises. Guess what! One's 68 years old and the other is 97. Can you believe that? Wow!
In all it was a very memorable day and I can't thank everyone who turned up enough (especially Uyi for forfeiting his football March. His team won anyways, thank God!) . At the last minute I was considering cancelling it as it seemed a lot of people either weren't in town or couldn't make it for one reason or the other, but I am soooooooooooooooo happy I swatted away that thought! Yesterday's hangout was more wonderful than I would have ever expected. The memories cannot be replaced or erased. I went home feeling happier than I have in a while. We've got to have another, and another, and then another!
