March's Pictures

Dr Who Once More
Dr Who Once More (Nikon D5000)

When deciding where to go today I thought about Crich Tram Museum partly because of this. I remembered that they had an old police call box and knew I wanted to complete the set. Yes I know I'm like some sad train spotter just worse. Turning up like some weird nerd at a Tram Museum with my camera bag, not to collect tram numbers but to take a picture of the police call box. My memory of the Tram Museum was favourable of course so I'm really not that bad. If the Museum wasn't up to much then I'd really not have bothered. To be honest the trip allowed me to add to two of my nerdy collections, the first being Dr Who's House and the second being Chainsaw Sculptures.

Anyway the promise this weekend was for good weather and we were slightly let down and it was rather cold and add to that one tram ride on the top deck outside and I was frozen. Even so it was a good day out what with the walk back where the wood sculptures were. Today there was a small display of Robin Reliants which we saw struggling what with the single front wheel and the tram tracks as the left for the day. Still a good day was had by all and I am sure in the future I'll add some more pictures of the day when there's a quiet weekend.

Exhibit 57: The Lizard, only 300 to go
Exhibit 57: The Lizard, only 300 to go (Nikon D5000)

When it was suggested that we went to Chester Zoo or Blue Planet Aquarium, I was hping that sense would prevail as I seem to remember I hating Chester Zoo, also the weather didn't look too great, however after turning up I realised that it wasn't Chester Zoo I heted I thought it was the Welsh Mountain Zoo... not the place itself I must stress more the way that we seem to have to go round the Zoo as some sore of tick list of all exhibits apparently defying tiredness or boredom. Personally I'm quite happy giving up half way round leaving my poor feet and my will to live intact. It became apparent at 4:30 that this is a tac tic in any zoo.

Luckily today I had my camera so this helped keep my spirits up and allowed me to take my mind off how long we were there and how many exhibits we were missing, however by 5pm as most people were following the exist signs and we were walking against the flow of traffic that once again we still had things to see, after all we wouldn't possibly leave the Zoo without looking at the Black Rhinos which to all intents and purpose look just like normal Rhinos when viewed 100 yards away.

Anyway back to the pic. It's a Lizard of some sort, but what sort I am not sure, please leave a comment if you know. I was too busy taking pictures to read the sign I am afraid then then we were off to the next one.
