Young neighbour Isabella, age 6 years, accompanied me on a magical mystery tour of Blackpool Sealife Centre.

In awe

Fascinated

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.

Without a doubt, Blackpool Sealife Centre is a great interactive family day out.

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!

The natural beauty
of an airborne kestrel 
suspended in flight, 
hunting for prey in the dunes,
takes some beating

Rubbish Furniture

Standard

A comfortable chair and table
overlooking the Ribble Estuary at Lytham

Not just any old chair and table

This is designer furniture
fashioned from rubbish
washed in with the tide:
wood, a buoy, life-belt, rope,
the remnants of a Public Footpath sign

A work of art

Feet – Part I

Standard

Fascinating feet

Feet

Get me out of here!

It doesn’t feel intrusive
taking pics of peoples’ feet
as they shuffle on their way

Weekend away?

 

Feet don’t pose for a snapshot

Feet just go
