These are Greenland (or Harp) seals, and appropriately for this series, their Latin name means ‘Ice lover from Greenland.’
They are gorgeously sleek, and the one swimming in the glass is quizzically checking us out. Seals are delightful to look at, both in the water, with their effortless grace, and out of the water, with their melting, dark eyes.
The vibrant cherries stand out against the muted purples. Fresh cherries – so good, and in New Zealand, we eat them at Christmas, which falls during our summer.
