It’ a rare treat that I actually do something in my hometown, what with constant road travel and everything.
The world is a big place.
Occasionally though I do find myself home for a weekend, and on even more rare occasions, I get to play Uncle with my nieces and nephews.
On one such Sunday, it all worked out where the four of us enjoyed a warm winter’s day exploring the new Living Planet Aquarium at the south end of the valley.
It’s a place where everyone can be a kid under the wonderment of nature. We learn about shark feeding habits, the close knit family habits of penguins, the solitary life of jellies.
We see new creatures and our imaginations soar. We touch the skeletal remains of the deep ocean.
