I do love the zoo, but when it comes to creatures I love sea creatures best of all. Unfortunately, we don't have an aquarium in Wellington. If we did I would have a yearly pass and there would be a lot of sea creature related blog posts.
Even though we don't have an aquarium, we do have a marine centre in Island Bay which gives you a chance to get up close with some fishy friends. So when I was feeling a bit down and out a couple of weeks back we decided to check out the marine centre.
The marine centre has creatures from our local coastline - which means no brightly coloured tropical fish, but there are plenty of rad sea creatures to check out.
It's always so hard to take a good photo of seahorses - but they are one of my favourites (even if they are kind of weird).
I'm pretty sure there aren't any turtles living along our coastline - but they are pretty awesome (especially with their turtle jenga).
After visiting the marine centre, we decided to go for a walk along the coastline for a bit in Island Bay, I really love this part of Wellington.
What do you guys like to do when you're feeling a bit down and out?
