One Smart Fish

Friday, July 15th at 16.00

Long ago in the deep ocean, there lived…one smart fish! He wasn’t the biggest and he wasn’t the boldest, but he was the cleverest. What this smart fish wanted more than anything else was to walk upon the land. But everyone knows that fish can’t walk…can they?

If you’d like to hear a cool story in English and make a little angling game afterwards please call ahead and reserve a place!
