An afternoon at the Horniman's

If the weather is dreary and you don't like to spend much time outside, South Londoner's have a little gem at their hands: The Horniman museum and gardens. Apart from the Horniman's delightful permanent collections for music, antropology (usually too scary for the little ones) and natural history section a hidden treasure can be found in the basement - a small but perfect aquarium.

On a drizzly afternoon, when moods were grumpy and tempers started to get out of control the Horniman's once more came to the rescue. Below a few impressions from our visit.

Checking out the geese

Foggy but stunning view onto the City of London (you just can make out the 'girkin' on the right)

This display of jelly fish is really stunning and I am in awe each time I see this.

My eldest said excited "The fish is talking to me". Maybe you can just make out the little fish at the bottom left, that was looking at my daughter opening and closing its mouth.

These stone fish are amazing.

Enjoying an ice lolly (or a latte in mummy's case) in the museums cafe!
