This past Saturday we drove to Hunstanton were we were told there was a Sea Life Sanctuary we could visit. It was a beautiful day and we had a lovely sea side visit.
The area we were in is called the Wash and here are some facts we learned about it.
There was a fun children's activity for the kids to do. We had to find 10 questions and answer them correctly in order for the children to win a prize. The kids enjoyed answering the questions.
This was a very interesting exhibit. Rescue Tank fish, these fish were privately owned but out grow their owners tanks. Some of these fish were absolutely huge. Here Little man is feeding them some fish food we bought.
Exploring the touch pool and learning about star fish.
These little creatures were a big hit with my kids.
We watched a nature show on Axolotl's in Mexico a few months ago and the kids were fascinated with them. They are very interesting creatures.
Largest crab I have ever seen and all I keep thinking about was crab cakes, YUM YUM
We saw rescues Penguins and sea lions in their hospital area. Fortunately there were not very many as of yet but they reported that the busier months are June and July.
After exploring the Sea Life Sanctuary we went for a walk along the beach. We spotted this
amphibious vehicle and took a short cruise around the Wash.
It was a bit cold on the boat and we only brought thin jackets but we enjoyed the history lesson regarding the Wash.
The Light house and at the mouth of the Wash were cliffs. The white portion of the cliff is chalk, the bottom is red limestone. Below along the water's edge is green algae covered stones which archeologist believe is an old Roman road.
On the drive home I noticed there was a Lavender farm nearby so I predict we will be coming back here as I read it has a distillery and you can take tours. That sounds like fun and educational.
