Last week I realised that a 50% Sea Life Centre voucher we had was about to expire. As Second Daughter LOVES going to aquariums and sea life centres, it seemed a shame not to use it. So on Saturday afternoon, off we went in the company of two of her friends.
I cannot remember how many visits we had already made to that particular centre. However, every time we go there is something else to discover. Last weekend we spotted a brand new turtle section, the jellyfish area had been re-decorated in a very effective pirate ship style and as you may have seen in my last Silent Sunday/My Sunday Photo post, we came across shark babies. I had to ask what they were as I had absolutely no idea – my excuse is that I come from a country where there is no sea to be found – and thank you Lesley from Mad Dog Woman of Shackleford for telling us that they are called mermaids’ purses. What a pretty name!
I also like the fact that children are being given a little booklet to fill in with answers, which encourages them to really pay attention to what they are seeing and reading. The three girls also showed me several times along the way how pretty the different stamps they got at each station were… 😉
I really regretted forgetting to take my real camera with me, as it would have been great practice with much better results. There is always the next time, I suppose!
