The Lakes Adventure

When the weather is bad, there is one thing people do. Stay at home. But what if you are on vacation, and supposedly you are stuck with one bored toddler. Then this kind of thing will saved you out of misery.
It opened in 1997 as The Aquarium of the Lakes when the displays followed the theme of a Lake District stream, flowing down into the lake and then on to Morecambe Bay. During 2008 it was re-branded as the Lakes Aquarium, with a theme of the lakes of the world. The attraction is now owned by Spanish leisure company Parques Reunidos, who own and operate 67 parks across the world.

The Lakes Aquarium is an aquarium on the southern shore of Lake Windermere, Cumbria, England. It is one of the docking points of Windermere Lakes Cruises and also at one end of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway. It is the third most visited paying tourist attraction in Cumbria. The Lakes Aquarium contains both freshwater and salt water animals.

Wait a minute, since when harvest mouse is part of the aquarium wildlife? It does not belong anywhere underwater or close to water habitat doesn't it?
