Well the second week of the Easter break has started and the snow has disappeared, only to be replaced by rain. Bleh. Jay and I both have the week off work to spend time with the girls, so yesterday we decided to take them to the Macduff Marine Aquarium.
The aquarium had a number of things going for it;
It was close by (just over an hour away)
It was indoors (incase the rain came down)
It was pretty inexpensive (who isn’t on a tight budget now a days)
And the girls are fascinated by fish (first thing they ask to see in the pet store)
So we packed sandwiches, fruit, a flask of tea, juice and set off.
I think we all agreed it was well worth the trip.
The big tank was pretty amazing with some weird prehistoric looking fish and also some HUGE fish in it. I have to admit I am not very knowledgeable about sea creatures, so I was stunned to discover the massive ones were cod. Not what I imagined they looked like when tucking into a fish supper.
The little tanks were interesting too. The baby flat fish with faces were cool but also a little bit creepy. They reminded me of Cassandra from Doctor Who (moisturise me).
I think at the end of the day Jay and I enjoyed it as much as the kids (if not more) and look forward to going back another day.
