Day 2 – Lakes Aquarium
The boat trip brought us to the southern tip of Lake Windermere to the Lakes Aquarium. Our tour guide Dave, brought us through the Aquarium and taught us a lot in such a short space of time. We learnt about Asian otters and then journeyed through a tropical rainforest where we saw a range of animals including marmoset monkeys, lizards and crocodiles. We saw clownfish, piranhas and pufferfish up close. We then took an amazing walk underwater where giant carp and diving ducks swam above our heads. Dave surprised us with a boa constrictor called Charlie but only the brave dared to hold it!
