I love nature, but I have to admit that the sea really does freak me out. I just hate that feeling of not knowing what’s beneath my feet in the depths below and to be honest my fear of sharks doesn’t really help…
You can imagine how excited I was when my friends and I decided to go to the Sealife Centre – I can see pretty fish without having to swim thousands of leagues away (an exaggeration) and not crap myself if there’s a shark (not an exaggeration). I could merrily skip past the shark tanks if needed!
I really wanted to wear something mermaid-themed but I only really have one blouse that was way too cold to wear at the time (it’s super hot now in England which is lovely!). Instead I settled for my Barbie outfit I put together in a previous post, having been inspired by Nikki Lipstick. I missed wearing dark makeup and pink clothes!
As soon as we stepped in I knew it was going to be awesome because the first part was the penguin area! They looked so so cute! Unfortunately we missed the penguin show… Hopefully we’ll see one the next time we go.
They then showed us some rays and fishes, star fish, clownfish… before moving onto the weird and wonderful species of the sea. I also got the chance to touch a star fish! I was a bit skeptical at first because if I was a star fish I sure as hell wouldn’t like that, but the assistant assured me that it was okay so I did it. It felt kind of rough and bumpy and not as weird as I thought.
There were so many cool things to see but if I had to pick my favourite, it would be the jellyfish. I was in such awe of them that Amy & I stayed behind to gaze at them for a while. I just loved how the light shone through them and made them changed into all sorts of wonderful colours. When they turned pink I just had to get a photo.
And that was it! All in all I was quite happy with the Sea Life centre, I just wished it didn’t have so much maintenance work going on! What’s your favourite sea creature? Have you been to Sealife before?
Until next time cuties! ♡
