On Friday my son’s school had a pupil free day which means his teachers had a day of staff development. When I went to school I wonder if staff development existed back then or whether they just did it during our holidays.
Rather than just hang around here doing the normal procrastinating I thought we should go and do something. I suggested the museum, the art gallery – he suggested a movie – and after a bit of research on the internet we settled on the Seahorse Farm at Port Adelaide. Excellent, I thought, I’ll get some great photos there. Except I didn’t because you’re not allowed to take photos.
So you’ll just have to take my word for it that we saw lots of seahorses including baby seahorses, a pregnant dad seahorse, a leafy sea dragon, and even some little sharks. We also patted a little shark – the skin felt quite rough.
It didn’t take that long to watch the video and have a look around in there so we went for a bit of a wander nearby afterwards.
I was very lucky to get this photo of him as he’s becoming a very reluctant model these days.
But then he gets into a shot when I don’t want him to and this shot reminds me that I need to cut his fingernails.
I really like visiting Port Adelaide as it’s one of the older parts of Adelaide and the buildings are a testament to this.
It was a good way to spend a few hours on a warm winter’s afternoon.
