My Favourite Creature of all Time

Penguins!!!! Pure and simply I am besotted by penguins.

When we go to the zoo I spend endless amounts of time at the enclosure watching them swim and waddle around. I love love love one of the ones at Edinburgh zoo who is so tame it comes up to the fence and puts its beak to your fingers through the bars and is sooooo gentle.

I have a cuddly penguin I take to bed at night that my Hubby bought me the first ever time we went to the zoo together when we were dating. Its old and scruffy now with its beak and feet hanging off but I still love it.

I cant wait to get back to the zoo this year in August when we meet with friends but mostly to see my beloved penguins.


  1. I love penguins too, they really make me chuckle. My hubby thinks I'm a bit strange as I'm always laughing at them on tv, I think its the waddling!

  2. I used to like penguins...of the chocolate bar variety, but think yours are probably better!

  3. haha bless ya both, I have to say Im quite partial to the chocolate ones too. xx

  4. Penguins are my favourite too, love these photos :D Jen.

  5. Oh, I love Penguins. Have you seen the animated version of Olvier Jeffers 'Lost and Found'? If you haven't, I urge you to go and buy it. One of my little boys first sentences was 'I want go in boys boat duddle penguin' after watching that on repeat. Gorgeous.
