A Visit to the Aquarium

In February there was a special deal one weekend to buy tickets with about a $10 savings. You had to pick your day so we picked a Friday after daddy had been away for two weekends. We had planned to go at different times last year but didn't make it because of snow. We got there early and I do recommend that.

There are a number of small display areas and sometimes we did have to wait a bit for people to clear out so we could see but other all I didn't feel rushed.

There were three different places where you could touch something -- sharks (just little ones), rays and then some starfish and other things. J touched the blue lobster which was a mutation.

There was an African section which was a nice break from all the fist but still included fish and some birds and some hippos.

There are seals and penguins outside and it had warmed up a bit so were able to go outside for a bit.

It took us about three hours go to through the whole place. It was a fun time and we would return again if we could find another good deal on tickets.

On the way home we stopped in Chinatown for lunch. It has been quite a some time since we were there. I bought dumpling wrappers as we had been craving LiLin's Dumplings. More about that later.
