Sealife Centre!

At the end of July my boyfriend and I visited the Sealife Centre in Birmingham. We probably visit once a year and it makes a lovely day out. The entry fee you pay for the Sealife Centre supports the breeding, protection and rescue of sea creatures. It is nice to feel like we can have a nice day out and our money goes toward a good cause. The Birmingham Centre has a specific focus on otters and seahorse conservation. (Website link if you would like to find out more).

Have you been to the Birmingham Sealife Centre? Or another Sealife Centre? What did you think?

Here are some of my pictures:

The jellyfish were my favourite. They are so hypnotising the way they float around!

Tenerife 2013

Last week I returned from a week long break in Tenerife with my boyfriend. We had a lovely relaxing stay at the Oasis Mango located in Los Cristianos (south of the island). The weather was beautiful all week; very sunny, breezy and hot.

We spent a lot of time walking around discovering the local area and scenery. As well as eating way too much delicious food and relaxing by the pool/beach we picked up lots of cool trinkets and souvenirs!

We were planning on visiting the highest point in Spain, Mount Teide, but a mix up with coaches meant we couldn’t go. Although this does give us a very good excuse to go back again sometime!

Here are some of our pictures:

Have you been to Tenerife or another Canary Island? What did you think?

On our way home we stopped off in Nottingham. We were too tired to do much but we will be going back to visit the castles and Sherwood Forrest!
