Topside, Peanut got in trouble for leaning past the rails…
The outdoor exhibits face out to the gulf, and barges were going by all the time…
We ALL enjoyed the ray tank!
Another favorite was this inside tank that also had rays in it. Because this tank was see-through, you could view the underside of the ray… they are really cute!
Caleb walked all over the aquarium – he loved the fish swimming around and all the lit-up aquariums.
The kids liked the sea horse tank also – we never realized that each sea horse was so unique!
We had a lovely visit to the aquarium, with Savanna and Molly each asking if we could go there again tomorrow – before we had even reached the van.
We topped off our visit with a drive down the beach during sunset, and our trip home included a ride on the ferry. (we have this thing for ferrys! 😉 )
We are rather partial to this area. 😀
