>A Grand Day Out

>6 a.m. this morning saw us reluctantly get out of bed as DD was swimming in Leeds & we had to be there for 8 a.m. She’s missed nearly two weeks training so didn’t do as well as she’d hoped but we left the pool by 10 so were determined to make a better day of it. Tropical World was a short drive away & we had a great time.

We didn’t see as many butterflies as we have done previously but maybe it’s the wrong time of year:

This Piranha looked as if it’d been rolling in gold glitter:

My favourite photo of all but I don’t know what type of fish it is – if you do please let me know:
