Pictures today! From Oceanopolis at Brest yesterday, a great big aquarium by the sea. It wasn't on our very rough and ready holiday plan to come to this city by the sea but I'm so glad we did. We've found a camping spot next to the water. I've had my morning cuppa watching the sunrise and then went for a flattish run. Lou hasn't stirred yet. What do you expect? He's a teenager on holiday. Anyway let's get on with my virtual slideshow. Now can you guess which one's Nemo?
Lou's been here before but he was little and memories were slow in coming. But they did come back to him. 'Did I lose a cuddly dog here?' he said as he went in. Yes he bloody did! What a palaver that was. The entrance to the polar region smelt fishy. 'There's penguins here isn't there?' he said as the odour jogged more brain cells into action. He didn't quite remember where they were though. You watch a film and then a screen rises to reveal these guys.
The Polar region houses some amazing Inuit art. A whole skull carved with little people, animals and igloos. But I think this is my favourite, a hunter with a seal under the ice.
Weird creatures I've never seen before. I did take a picture of the notice showing what they are but I can't be arsed to go and have a look. I'm on holiday after all.
Arty inspiration in the gift shop at 20 and 40 Euros a throw. I wondered if I could cut something similar myself out of scrap metal for my garden.
An absolutely gorgeously blue lobster.
I have to be careful with choosing activities for Louis these days in case they're seen as baby-ish. He choose to do this himself. The joy on his face suggests that steering model boats about a little artificial pond and trying to crash into the others is still perfectly okay.
More art because I'm that kind of girl. Isn't it fabulous? Now I know what the Inuits do on those long cold nights when they're stuck inside!
