Elephants rides

By Carol kirkpatrick {nee Robinson}

Going to the Zoo as a child - it was a day out every year as we never had holidays. We always had a ride on the elephants. One year it chased my dad, which we all thought to be really funny. Chester Zoo holds happy memories for me; the fantastic gardens, lawn areas where we had our picnic, the smell of roses all around... We used to take food to feed the some of the animals with, you could in those days. One word to sum up Chester Zoo: FANTASTIC. Thank you, you made my childhood rich with memories.
