Today we had our visit to the Horniman Museum, a great place full of wonderful things-musical instruments, sealife, masks, chickens, stuffed animals and skeletons. We were there mainly to see the aquarium, which the children loved. We had a spare ten minutes at one point so we went to see the stuffed animals which I was not at all sure they would be that interested in. They loved them! We saw a big bad wolf, a fox, skeletons and crocodiles. They loved relating the animals to stories they know. (Me too!)
The jellyfish against their blue background were just dreamily beautiful.
There was a big tank of very pretty fish. I liked the variety and we had fun spotting different colours.
I like the accidental blurry effect of the next photo-like ghost fish!
This video is not from today. This weird dog like fish was in an aquarium we visited on Guernsey last Easter, long before blogging occurred to me! Isn't he strange? How can a fish look so much like a dog, and a particular breed
of dog at that?!
