The Day Aquatic
This weekend MD, or 'Cuncle' as Joel likes to call him, came to visit. We are experiencing some rather strange Spring weather with snow drops and snow flakes out in equal quantities, bitter winds have made outdoor activities face stingily enduring so indoor fun was called for.
We headed out to Lakes Aquarium, another local attraction which we've never been to. The Aquarium has its own steam railway station and is on the edge of Lake Windermere, we admired the views from the warmth of the upstairs cafe whilst tucking into afternoon tea, yum.
The Aquarium was ace with every type of sea life imaginable, including Otters, baby Crocodiles and Starfish (which wriggle around like worms!) There was lots to look at, or run past in Joels case.
Joel loved it apart from when he got scared of the giant tortoises, he thought they weren't real and then one moved which gave him a start. He even managed to drop some Lego (a police mans torso) in one of the displays so we had to call a man with a big scooping net to come and get it! By the end of our visit Joel was getting pretty tired, we had a brilliant time though and I think this picture says it all.
