Red Orchids

This morning we went to the Botanical Gardens for a stroll. I'm quite impressed by the jungle vegetation. Great sizes, shapes and colors - very good for photography. We also went into the orchid garden with a great variety of orchids, Among Them "Margaret Thatcher" and "Kofi Annan". In kept snapping away. Atleast some of the pics turned out okay, but I do need a new lens for my D40 ...
After That the kids were quite tired, so the others went back home and Gitta and I Continued around the gardens, to a lake with swans and water lilies, a magnolia garden and a great Liane path with big impressive trees.

High tea at Goodwood Park

In the afternoon we went to Goodwood Park for the high tea. They had a great variety of food and cakes, and the oolong tea was excellent. Yum!
Now it's time for relaxing a while before heading to the night zoo. A great day.
