After breakfast we went to The Aquarium. As it was a nice day and it was not very far we walked here. It was a lovely walk in the sun along the coast. We saw lots of fish along with some sharks, eels, jellyfish and sting rays. Afterwards we had a pizza or burger for lunch and then walked back along the coast to the hotel. After dinner the entertainment was a band where we enjoyed listening to the music and it was a chance for those who wanted to to enjoy a dance.
