Good evening everyone.

Today Martin and I visited Blackpool Zoo and amidst the rain, had a wonderful time with the pride of lions there. (Yes...... I cried again when I saw them!)

Gillian (one of the three adult females) gave birth to three female cubs in April 2009.
Luna, Kimya and Nikita are truly beautiful to see and I felt so honoured to watch them play with their father and mother. I spent an hour with them, I didn't want to leave - Martin had to drag me away because I would have been there until the zoo closed!

I will be uploading more of the pride, for you all to view.
Thank you again for your continued support, comments and votes.

Best Wishes
Bev Smile
