Aquarium Visit

Yesterday we went with the gardening club to the aquarium. It was a

lovely experience.

Just look at the colours on this chap.SV202527

A five legged starfish. Now is it a leg or an arm or what?

The starfish in the background is a 9 legged one. I was told that if they lose a leg with a bit of the disc in the middle they will grow another. The dark one had lost half of its legs and was regrowing them. You can see the legs furthest away are a lot smaller that the ones at the front.

After our visit we went to a taverna and had a smashing meal. 10 euro each. Can't be bad.

Do hate anonymous, don't you? Why?
What's wrong with leaving a name, especially if you're going to ask questions..only polite if you ask me!
Nice pictures, wish I'd been there. See you later.

Sorry Anonymous, but I don't know what its called. It's out of Malia heading towards Aghios Nickolias.
Past the big garden centre (on the right) but before the turn off to Sissi. You get what they have cooked that day. We had fish, a bit weird that, going seeing them swimming around in tanks and then going eating fish for lunch!!!

I didn't mean to be rude, not leaving my name...It is the first time I've posted a comment and I got a bit confused with the instructions. I enjoy reading both your blog and also Jude's as my husband and I are going to move to Latsida in 2011 and like to keep up with what is going on in this neck of the woods. I am also a keen gardener and enjoy the photos of the wild flowers and the info about the veggie garden.

Hi Vivien,
Think Jude had a bit of a strop on. Some anonymous people leave nasty comments. Nice of you to come back and say who you are. Do drop by any time, your more than welcome. So when are you coming over for a holiday then? I take it you have a house in Latsida?
