During our holiday we went to the Sea Life Centre in Weymouth and got to see some wonderful creatures including this lovely little Humboldt penguin.
Sadly, over-fishing and habitat destruction have left the Humboldt Penguin vulnerable. Numbers are declining and the current population which live near Peru and Chile, may only be up to 12,000. Very sad indeed.
I'm really glad that I went to visit during term time, this place would have been a nightmare with children running around screaming like they are probably doing this week. The highlight of the day was definitely penguin feeding time, seeing those guys waddle is the best.
On our final day we headed to Lyme Regis for a stroll along the beach and a ice cream which was the perfect way to end our lovely week in Dorset.

I'm hoping to spend time with friends this weekend, enjoy the great outdoors and scoff plenty of chocolate. Hope you all enjoy the long Easter weekend and get up to something nice.
