The Model and I had a girls' day out here recently. Grief it was busy, the beach was jam packed but at least the sun kept most people out of the oceanarium.
We've been here many times before, the children love it so much and I have to say it is well worth a visit. As well as a great many fish, eels, a couple of playful otters and crustacea from all around the globe, it is home to two rescue turtles, Crusoe and Friday ..
and a handful of sharks, including its own dive cage ..
Of course it's always possible their fascination for this place may have just a little to do with the large gift shop, that I have spent waaay too long waiting around in!
The golden sandy beach (where there lay many red-skinned lobster-likes) is long, clean, beautiful and is also, I'll have you know, where my divine girl proved she really can walk on water ..
As usual, there were the ubiquitous beach-side stalls selling 'tat' and, true to form, the Model wanted to buy from each one, eventually settling on a mood ring. Have you seen these things, they're a lot of fun? Hers would have us believe she is quite normal .. I won't tell you what it said about me!
