Aliyah was seven months old when my sister invited us for a beach family bonding. At first, she feels uncomfortable wearing life jackets, and the saltwater makes her cry but after fifteen minutes she finally laughs, enjoying the saltwater. She doesn’t want to go out in the water anymore.

I lived in Teeside for six years in the late 80’s and never saw a seal at Seal Sands. They’d been driven out by industry. We visited again two years ago and saw more than thirty sunning themselves on Greatham Creek. These are some of the Harbour Seal.
My grandson, Jacob, adores owls. At the Robin Hood Festival they have a stand with owls. As it was nearly his third birthday we decided to treat him to an owl experience. It was marred slightly, by the floods of tears, when he had to give the scops owl back.
