On Easter Sunday we went out in the sunshine to Victoria Park in Canton. It's one of Cardiff's bigger parks, with a big play area, a splash park, lots of trees and flowerbeds and a caff selling ice creams.
It also has a statue of a onetime resident of the park, Billy the Seal. We took a selfie with him.
Billy was discovered in with a catch of fish when a trawler docked in Cardiff in 1912. He was subsequently kept in a small pool in Victoria Park where he lived until 1939. After he died, it was discovered that actually Billy was a female seal. Her skeleton is now on display in the National Museum of Wales. Billy was later the subject of a song by folk group The Hennessys, who also wrote a song about The Grangetown Whale.
Incidentally, Grangetown now has a whale mural.
