Seahorses In Salcombe

I need to see one of the little chaps but I don't dive. Can I do it any other way?

Does this work?

Seriously though, I have seen a very few diving over the years in the Carribbean. Mostly, they're really small, and don't move around much!

Is there a Seaquarium you can go to? They would have one most likely...

Is there something peeping out from under her arm?
Is that a seahorse?

Perhaps thats why I've not seen one before:-

They only pop out when its cold

Saw that on telly this morning, brought back memories of catching loads of them whilst shrimping as a kid. That was alongtime before the eastuary became an SSI and they always went back, dad said there was no meat on 'em.

After you've queued up for an hour and a half to get in, then shuffled past each exhibit in a constant flow of bodies.

Did I mention we went there a few weeks ago for the day!
