Museums and memories

On Saturday we took Sky to the museum at Bayworld here in Port Elizabeth. You may ask how much can a four-month-old take in about a museum.

I think quite a lot.

Having grown up in the Gauteng region, I still have memories of my earliest visits to the Museum of Natural History in Pretoria, even of exhibits that closed before I was two-years-old. I also remember loving exploring Santarama Miniland (which I read on the internet is in desperate need of renovation).

Taking Sky around Bayworld, she enjoyed the dinosaurs (just like her daddy used to), and also was very interested in their collection of shells, seaweed and water creatures. (She may have thought she was watching an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants!)

But once we got to the upstairs area where the cultural history is, she fell asleep (hmmmm, not likely to share daddy’s interest in antiques and political history!)

Overall it was a great outing though, and I can’t wait to take her on other outings as she grows up!
