Sunday Sketches on the beach

Hi guys, I just got back from a wonderful weekend down the coast with the family. We took the boys to the zoo and saw some beautiful animals, Tigers, Lions, Red Panda's, snakes, giraffes but to name a few. My favourites though were the chimps such beautiful creatures who were just as curious about us as we were with them.

This zoo was very special because of it's breeding program for endangered species and is one of very few in the world who's managed to successfully breed a silvery Gibbon. I will be going back again with the boys as we loved it so much next time I'll make sure that we take lots more photos!!  I had a little time on the beach this morning to do this picture in the sand so thought I would upload it for Sunday sketches. I'm off to bed now soooo exhausted but will be catching up on all your wonderful work in the morning!!! :0)

That sand drawing is just perfection. I hope you left it for other people to stumble across. We're lucky if we don't stumble on bits of boys anatomy drawn in the sand round here :D :D
