The Ulster Wildlife truck had been packed with everything we needed for a public event, under the watchful eye of Dave (concerned about letting his young trainees fly solo for the first time). We had our ocean giants, marine life tank, seashore treasures and a sizeable gazebo, all wedged in tight in a fun game of packing tetris.
We arrived and started setting up the gazebo, working fast because the eager festival-goers were already appearing before the official start time! Once the gazebo was set up Emma and I worked in a tag team with one of us engaging and talking with the interested public, while the other arranged our displays. Soon it was perfect and we had everything we needed... Except some marine life for our Marine Life Tank! Emma bravely volunteered to person the stall while I went to find some critters and beasties.
