It's been quite a while since Ed the bear came to visit me in South Africa (if you'd like to read about his visit, go to my blog written on 16 Jan 2012). I've now finally gotten around to visiting him in the UK.
We didn't waste time, after a quick hug hello, we set off for the World Oceans Day (WOD) event at Shoreham, which is a small historical town by the sea and a river. We arrived early and had time to look around the farmers market.
After a yummy pie and a fresh fruit juice, Ed, Bella (Ed's sister) and I went to set up the WOD display stand.
It was really cool, the stand had some pictures from when Ed visited me in South Africa and a little bit of information about me. I felt a bit like a super star! : )

Don't worry Sea Fans, it's not all doom and gloom, there are also scientists finding solutions to the extra CO2! But in the mean time, you can also make a difference:
- cycle to school instead of going by car
- get your mom to buy local produce instead of goodies that have flown halfway across the world to get to you
- plant your own veggies so that you don't have to go to the shops and so that you don't have to buy those imported veggies that have flown so far
Have a great week and enjoy the beautiful weather wherever you are....and if it's not great weather, go and visit your local aquarium!
