we had to reel him in due to a boom of thunder!
The thing about weather in the summer, is that it can change with a flash, accompanied by some thunder as well. Wednesday was another hot morning at Blacks Creek, and by the time we made it to the Children's Museum for the afternoon, the air was sticky. That didn't last for long, as suddenly the skies opened up, and fat rain drops poured from the sky. It was almost as if someone had turned a faucet on full blast. In fact, it was raining so hard, that a flash flood warning was issued for the area. It was a mad dash to ensure that all of our property safely made it out of the rain and under the tent. We attempted to continue to show off the animals in our touch tank, including a baby flounder we pulled up in the crab trap! Unfortunately, yet unsurprisingly, not many people were walking whose attention we could grab. However, we ended up bringing our touch tanks inside, at the suggestion of Alyssa, a Childrens Museum employee. We set up right inside, and were able to attract the attention of many families, who were excited to see our animals! All in all, while weather can pose a threat to our activities, there's always something we can do to soldier on.
Until next time, where I should be safe and dry,
