Burt and friends go to the Park

Burt makes his first appearance in the FTB blog and what a bright fellow he is. On his first outing he got to see a lot of different animals at the zoo and took a train ride on a very wee train. Thanks to Melody for the great pictures. Happy thanksgiving everyone.
Burt couldn't wait to board the train and sneak a peak at the engine whilst the conductor wasn't looking.
A bit of a daredevil he rides precariously balanced on the rail of the train basking in the sunshine.
He spies the donkeys. " I want to ride, he says."
There are a few formalities to go through first. He puts himself under the sign but is so small that it would be tricky to see him in the picture. He's definitely small enough.

He saddles up for the ride of his life. Trouble is the saddle isn't a custom fit and its more like riding a bucking bronco !
He can't wait to tell his friends all about his drama.
He bids farewell and goes off in search of more interesting animals.
He sees a big old bear who seems a bit lonely so he stops for a chat.

He wonders what it would be like to be a bear. He gets a bit of vertigo from being so high up.
Next he says hello to the goats who eye him suspiciously.
He asks one of the goats to pose for a photo and he obliges.
On his last stop of the day he visits the mountain lions, who sadly aren't roaming the mountain but they do have some private space from prying eyes. Although he's had a really fun day and learnt a lot about animals. Burt is glad he doesn't live in a zoo and gets to wonder about freely.
