His friend Jamie the Wrasse fish was going to swim to Dublin, and Lenny’s mum said he wasn’t allowed to go with him! Lenny was so sad, that he stayed sulking on his rock all day and night. In the morning Jamie the Wrasse came looking for him and suggested they should sneak out! Lenny the anemone didn’t think that was a good idea, to be honest he didn’t really like the thought of moving from his rock, but he went along with it anyway. rock! y m I love After a while they set off, but Jamie was swimming too fast for him Of course Wrasse fish are designed for swimming, but anemones don’t have fins so can only float along in whatever direction the water is flowing. Lenny wanted to go back, but couldn’t turn around, and then got caught in some floating rubbish! Jamie tried to help him but his little fins weren’t strong enough to help. Back at home, Lenny’s mum was very worried when she spotted the empty place on the rock! She asked Mr. Wrasse to go out and look for them. He set out and soon came upon the troubled pair. Mr. Wrasse helped free Lenny from the rubbish and they went home! Lenny was in so much trouble, but very happy to be home!! He would never ever do that again! Jamie was going to have to find another sea friend to take on trips, Lenny liked his place on the rock just fine!
