Visit to the Sea Aquarium

March 6

We had a very laid back morning, although having finished yesterday's blog with a moonrise picture, I feel compelled to show you the sunrise picture Don took this morning.

After we had lunch at home, we went to the Sea Aquarium. We are now trying out new side roads to places if we can find a way on the map. So we explored some new roads and found the aquarium without any problem. The aquarium was very interesting, particularly for the snorkelers, because they got to see some of the fish, etc. that they had seen while snorkeling but they also got the informative panels about different species. We watched the flamingos being fed; Don fed a stingray and we got well splashed; we all got to pat the nurse sharks and help feed them; Don got kissed by a seal lion female, Snapper; and of course, we watched the dolphin show. The staff were very friendly and helpful and wanted to share any information they could about their charges.

On our way home, we did some driving around the neighbourhood we can see from our front patio. There is quite a variety of housing - from tiny little places to huge mansions - and lots of them are waterfront properties. We also checked out where another snorkel site is - the Tugboat. It was a little tricky to find, it involved driving over a windy road past the old quarantine building, past the old fort, etc. etc. But we did find it and I think the guys will go snorkeling there tomorrow.
