Welcome to Ecomare, where lucky seals and dolphins come to retire. I have to admit that seeing seals that are nearly blind or have eerie red eyes swim close by felt a bit disturbing but I could also only imagine what their lives would be like if they stayed out in the wild. Sleeping with the fishes takes on a whole new level of meaning. We were also lucky enough to be there during feeding time and to be able to see it out in the open and under a beautiful Dutch sky.
It was the last stop in our return tour of Texel and since we missed it on our last visit, finally seeing it this time around was a nice ending to another successful weekend.
