Planning to go to ‘The Aquarium’, I had a lot of images running through my mind. I had regaled the boy with stories of our trips there every year for the last 5 years. I was certain that they would enjoy it all seeing they’d never been there.
However, on reaching there, not only was I in shock, but my children wondered why I had praised this place so much. There were only 2 fish to see, the coral was gone, and so were most of the sea plants.
Having spent the last penny for the week on gas for our trip, I was infuriated that I had banked on this trip for nothing.
Not only were the children unable to write a thing for their weekend expedition assignment, they were hungry and bored.
What a way to crown the week!!
