A visit to the sea life centre...

On Saturday we took a trip into Southend with our friends and their son, to visit the sealife centre. I haven't been for years, so we thought it would be good to take the kiddies along.



Leah loved looking at the fish - but seemed to enjoy running about just at much. I think she wanted to join the children's party that was taking place at the same time ( I never knew that little boys could be soooo noisy! I don't think there was one of them at the party that spoke rather than shouted!)
It was quite difficult to take many photos because of the lighting, but we did manage a few. We saw some gigantic sea bass - about a metre long - stingrays, plaice and sharks too! There were also some little turtles and some cute tree frogs.


Here was a fish (not sure what) swimming quite fast - I liked the effect the camera took, all by accident too :o)

We went to a cafe afterwards for a cup of tea (the restaurant at the sealife centre was full of the kids party!) and I took her on the Tweenies ride outside and she loved it! Luckily she was happy with the one go :o)

No strange faces in the water, then? (The sea-life place in Hull - The Deep - is in turmoil after a visitor found a ghostly face in a picture she had taken of some fish!)

You didn't know little boys could be noisy? :-O Are you serious? It is sometimes deafening if there are a whole group of them! x

My boys favourite part about Sea Life centres was the bit where they could handle crabs etc. It's a great day out.

What a cute little girl! She looks like she loved the fish. I don't think she is ready for a haircut, quite yet.

Aawww that is so nice! I do enjoy watching sea creatures. There was a great movie about sea life at IMAX. Highly recommended.

My kids go NUTS when we take them to aquariums. There's a huuuge one at Darling Harbour in Sydney. When we go to Sydney our little guy takes it for granted that he will be off to see the fishies! Jen
