We just got back from a fabulous five day trip to Melbourne where I took Little Miss to the Melbourne Aquarium. A lovely friend of mine met us there and the plan was for us to chat, catch up and enjoy all of the beautiful sea creatures, while Little Miss was mesmerised by the amazing fish, giant jellyfish and penguins. The reality was that she was more interested in climbing up and down stairs, opening curtains and crashing other peoples photos and we spent most of our time chasing her around. What I did manage to see was just sensational, and I would have loved to stay longer.
These penguins were just too cute! I loved their sleek, shiny coats and the burst of sunshine on their cheeks.
I’d never seen a seahorse before, and it was love at first sight. They are so graceful and beautiful.
I found it so relaxing to watch these jellyfish bobbing up and down in the water, all I needed was a cocktail and the relaxation would have been complete!
The colour of these fish was amazing, the exact same neon yellow that is everywhere in the shops right now.
After our visit, Little Miss fell asleep in her pram (which almost never happens) so I made the most of the opportunity to wander through David Jones and to my absolute delight I stumbled across these amazing Scanlan and Theodore aquarium prints – how perfect was the timing?
It was such a great way to end our day of underwater love.
Have you ever had a trip not go exactly according to plan?
