Sunday in Durban Botanical Gardens

Last Sunday we had a little family outing and picnic in the Durban Botanical Gardens.

Thanda investigating the Orchid House...

...and investigating it with Mum.

Pelicans are a common sight in the gardens.....
Pelican are Monkeys. This little fellow was only too happy to pose for a picture.

It is also a popular venue for wedding photographers....

...and even if you don't have a wedding to shoot there is plenty of material for photographing.

Some more pictures of Thanda's first week with us

Thanda trying out one of the swings that is in the children's playground behind our house.

Diesel is still unsure about this newcomer to the household. Here he makes an exploratory sniff of his rival for parental attention.

Her favourite toy is Kroc (I chose this particular spelling in honour of Ray Kroc)

Thanda meets the grandparents

Fortunately Tracy's parents live only a 15 minute walk away from our home so the first day Thanda was home we took her up to visit.

Walking through the park that separates our houses.
