The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colourful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon to Pearl on the Rock, located on White Rock's historical beachfront.
