Happy May everyone! Today is a bank holiday here in the UK, which means an extra day off work and time to enjoy a three day weekend. Unfortunately as my other half works in retail, he’s having to work today, so I’m enjoying a nice chilled day in bed watching lots of films. It’s exactly what was needed after quite a fun packed and exciting weekend.
Yesterday we originally had plans to visit Arundel Castle, which, as someone who loves history and a good castle, has been somewhere I’ve wanted to go for quite a while. After driving there from Hove, the heavens opened; typical April showers! In order to get away from the weather, and still make the most of our Sunday, we decided to visit the Brighton Sealife Centre; a place we both love to visit and would also get us out of the rain.
I’m a big fan of the work of the Sealife Centres based across the country, having visited the majority of them at some point in my life when on holiday with my parents. They do fantastic work in looking after an extraordinary number of species, helping to not only breed these beautiful underwater creatures, but to also educate people of all ages about the need for sustainable fishing, action against climate change, looking after our seas and protecting its inhabitants.
Obviously you can’t use flash photography in aquariums, as the flash hurts the fish’s eyes, so some of the following photos might not be the best of quality, but I thought I’d share them with you anyway. Enjoy!
