Every good holiday in France should involve an aquarium. We’ve done the fantastic one in La Rochelle, so it was time to try the one in St Malo. It looked smaller than La Rochelle, but the kids don’t remember to that level of detail so it’s gotta be worth a shout.

Anyway, the weather wasn’t brilliant at the start of the day, so something indoors seemed a good idea.

The Great Aquarium St Malo is another very good attraction. The kids loved it. It was indeed rather smaller than the aquarium in La Rochelle, but it was big enough still to be interesting and it kept us busy for a few hours through the morning. On the way out there was a ship’s funnel thing that was big enough for the kids to sit in, and hence ideal for a photo or two.

After we finished we shot off back into the centre of St Malo for lunch and another pop at a geocache there. Lunch was a success, the geocache wasn’t. This particular one was starting to turn into a “bogey” cache.

While we were there, we walked back through the old town and found the hair-braiding bloke, who was still there today, so both girls got the (apparently obligatory) French holiday hair braid. I wish I had a photo.

I did get some photos of fish though, as evidenced in the photo gallery.
