Day Three - Plymouth aquarium and rock pooling

Another hot and sunny day here in Devon. Farm duties were completed before breakfast and then we got onto the coach and minibus to travel to Plymouth. The journey was about an hour long.

 

Our first stop, when we arrived in Plymouth, was to go to Mount Batten Beach. Here we met our two Education Guides from the aquarium. They set us up with rock pooling equipment and identification cards. We had a great time finding small crabs, baby star fish, shrimps and even a dead jelly fish.  

 

Due to it being so hot on the beach, we headed off to the aquarium for lunch before our aquarium tour. We started with a talk about the aquarium by the Education Team and then we had a tour around the aquarium. For many this was a real great awe and wonder moment as this was their first time seeing such creatures as sharks, turtles and jelly fish up close. They even spotted Nemo and Dorey!

Back at Stone Farm, it was farm duties again before tea. The children are having their falconry display whilst I update the website for you.
