Day 1 of Kendrick Summer Vacation - Aquarium

We took Brett on a 3 day mini vacation just before he left for Florida. We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific, Whale Watching and to the Queen Mary. It was a great time.

Here is some of the fun we had Day 1 - Aquarium of the Pacific

We took a behind the scenes tour. It was really cool. Because we went on a sunday the classroom touch pools were not in use so we got to see them. These pools were great beacuse the animals in this pool were very interactive. The animals in the pools for the public were so touched that they barely responded to anything.

In the class room touch pool we saw sea anenomes

Sea urchins anenome eating an urchin. Yes, I said eating. The staff was a little upset about this, they just received the urchins and now they were short one. It was very national geographic.

We got to go above one of the exhibits and feed the fish, that was really cool.

these are hours old baby sea horses.

Shark eggs...At the aquarium they have figured out how to safely cut a shark egg and re seal it so that we can see what is going on inside the egg.
Watch out boy...the octuppuss wants to eat you!

Brett adopted a ray. He loved the rays.

Say cheese! Look the fish wants in the picture too!

Me, Brett and a sea lion.
Reef Sharks....

The ray that Brett adopted...

I'm hungry!

Brett liked this shark
We fed the lorakeets.....

The bird likes the treat...good bird

The bird finished his treat and decided to go for a walk.
At the end of his walk he found my earring...

We had an awesome time at the aquarium. I was nervous that Brett would be bored and not enjoy himself. He looked at each exhibit and read about each animal. We all enjoyed the day, the behind the scene tour was the best part. Feeding the fish and seeing the anenome eating the urchin was awesome, that is stuff that you only get to see on tv.
So the aquarium was a big hit, lets see how the next day goes....Whale watching
