Of all the animals we saw, my favourite was Ernie, the giant green see turtle. I snapped the photo below of Ernie swimming with lots of other animals (click on image for a larger view).
As we walked under the tank, we learned that Ernie is 11 years old, which is still quite young for a species used to living to almost a century. Seeing so much sea life in one place really got us thinking about our very distant cousins.
Before hopping on the train from Manchester to Sheffield, I snapped a photo of this headline (click on image for a larger view).
I suppose everything is relative. A temperature of 75 F (about 24 C) would be considered mild at this time of year in my Virginia hometown. My hometown will in fact have temperatures comparable to 75 F today, but with thunderstorms helping to keep the day "cool." Frankly, I'll take English weather any time!
