At the Aquarium

We visited the Island Bay Marine Education Centre last week on a Playcentre excursion. Here's Sebastian at the touch tanks.
He also got to feed the fish in one of the big tanks and watch the octopuses get their breakfast (live crabs). My favorite were the shark egg cases - you could see the tiny shark babies wriggling around in their translucent cases.
On the way out he had to check out the odd little compartments that line the outside of the aquarium building. Looking very colorful in his new pink boots and bright Orange safety vest (worn for safety on Playcentre outings).

Z is for Zealandia

A couple of weeks ago we took Sebastian on his fist visit to Zealandia. Our friends Angela and Aaron came along too. Here's a picture of Sebastian "hanging out"with Auntie Ange.

Zealandia formerly went under the more dignified name of Karori Wildlife Sanctuary. I volunteered there for years, but at this point I hadn't even visited in years. Sebastian loved it and was able to walk the main track mostly on his own. In fact we all had such a lovely time that we got an annual pass, with intentions to return often. Incidentally this also means we can bring friends along with us and get them in for half price.
