When we entered the Sea Life Centre Star was given a little booklet. It showed us things to see and do and when completed there was a stamper available to stamp in the book. The first task was to stroke a crab or star fish. Star was straight in there, she’s a real animal lover and isn’t afraid to go up and get close.
A new feature at the Sealife Centre is the Underwater Ice Adventure and the adorable Gentoo Penguins. They arrived earlier this year, back in March and I can’t believe I waited so long to see them.
When they arrived my local Cake Shop, Love Cake Supplies, made this gorgeous cake for them.

Here are some more lovely Gentoo Penguins. They really knew how to put on a show. I loved that you could see them both above and below water.
Then there were the jellyfish in their cylindrical tanks lit with changing colours. The entire room was absolutely mesmerising.
Of course, there are also the fish, lots of them.
And sharks, starfish, seahorses, rays and many many other creatures.
Star managed to complete all the stamps in her little book and received a medal at the end of our trip.
I do love the Sea Life Centre and I’m sure I’ll be visiting again soon.

N.B We paid for entry ourselves, but we had deal from a car park ticket. You can also get tickets from using Tesco Boost rewards which is what I plan to do next visit. Love Cake Supplies have not asked me to mention them. I’m doing it because I love their shop and their work.
