As you may remember, item numero uno on my More Delight List was to visit Miami Seaquarium. I wrote about our experience (and the complicated feelings that came along with the visit) yesterday, if you’d like to take a look. However, today I thought I’d share a few pictures.
First up, the reef aquarium…
…then a stroll through the tropical fish aquariums.
The manatees bear a striking resemblance to a cat I know. (And I kept thinking of the British tourists we met on Biscayne Bay who called them floating baked potatoes. Ha!)
The crocodiles and sea turtles were happily sunning themselves…
…with views of downtown Miami right across the bay.
Then we saw Lolita the Killer Whale. [Read more HERE.] (Can you spot the Pacific White Side Dolphins in mid-air 2 pictures down?)
Flamingos just chilling on one leg! Aren’t they prettiest shade of salmony-pink?
“They call him Flipper, Flipper, faster than liiiiightning…” [Side note: The house where the trainers and employees hang out is a replica of the house from Flipper the TV show. I would have snapped a pic but there were a couple of gals in wet-suits eating their lunch on the front porch and I thought it would be a little rude.]
Have you ever been to Miami Seaquarium? Do you have a favorite day trip activity in your city that brings you joy? I’d love to hear about it!
P.S. More fun photos — Biscayne National Park and Historic Savannah, GA!
