Young neighbour Isabella, age 6 years, accompanied me on a magical mystery tour of Blackpool Sealife Centre.
Beautiful fish, excellent informational talks, but (for me) a bit sad. Like Zoos. Captive creatures.
But these establishments exist for a purpose. To perpetuate dwindling species.

As if in flight
Wouldn’t it be perfect if Sealife Centres nationwide opened for a morning or afternoon for adults only.
Big people would learn so much more without the demands of little people!

suspended in flight,
hunting for prey in the dunes,
takes some beating
