Well we cracked it, Declan now loves snorkelling. And today was all about snorkelling.
The only problem is that Declan’s continual muffled cries of wonder, while he grabs hold of me to attract my attention to the latest thing he’s spotted, are pretty hard to distinguish from his earlier squeals of fear and panic. And, yes, Declan has fully mastered talking under-water.
A very fulfilling day of seeing lots of underwater things including a large hermit crab, a lobster, and countless fish – our favourite was the one that attacked the camera repeatedly.
