Despite a shaky start and a less than stellar ending that saw me come back to the caravan early because I was too tired and stressed to deal with all the noise, the middle of my day went pretty damn well really. I was able to go to Natureland and take two of the niecebeasts with me. My phone now has over 200 seal pictures on it (I let one of the nieces take photos for me while I held the other) so here are a select few.

I'm not sure if they were sunning themselves or posing

"Paint me like one of your French girls"

They only wave when the feeder makes them. He got one to spin too.

The babies especially look like dogs.

Here's a random penguin pretending to be a duck. One of the penguins was actually nesting and it was pretty cool.

The one on the left looks like he's tired of the one on the right's bullshit

I don't know what they laced the fish with but he seems to like it

Because they recognise him as the giver of food the babies follow him all around the pool. It's really cute. Every year they follow him around rather than stealing from the bucket he leaves at the entrance. I thought seals were supposed to be smart.

This one enjoyed swimming upside down

I got to go on the boat this year! It was pretty fun.

"Gibs me dat fish yo"
The niecebeasts we still have with us are trying to get me to go on the rides with them tonight. If you don't hear anything from me on Monday assume I died. I'm only half kidding. I'm still a hefty dude so I can't go on most of what they want me to and and even some of the things I can go on would probably kill me.

I'm Off To See The Seals

Turns out my sister could come after all. So I'm going to see the seals today. It'll be more fun too because I'll have one of the youngling niecebeasts with me. She loves them almost as much as I do and the only way to truly enjoy something is to do it with someone who enjoys it as much as you. Especially a child.

Apparently I'm in a spot of bother with my sister for telling her child that I'm currently on holiday with that she'll be coming. She's someone who likes everything to be a surprise but we plan shit out days in advance and, even after I tell the kids what we're doing, they still ask me every day what we're doing. What did she expect me to say? Plus I wanted to give them some advanced warning. If my sister came and their room was a mess and they were asleep the first thing she would do is yell at them and the day would be off to a terrible start. She's told my niece that she couldn't make it today after all (she is coming) so the surprise is back on, as is the terrible start to the day.

The seals will help.

Expect tomorrow's post to be about 90% seal pictures.

According to my trip in the TARDIS we're looking at about 95% seal pictures
