One day during my July 2008 visit to Connecticut, I went with my mom and dad (Terry and Harley) to the Maritime Aquarium in south Norwalk ("SoNo").
We arrived just in time to catch the seal feeding. What with it being summertime, it was pretty crowded with kids, so we had to make our way up to the overlook on the second level:
The permanent part of the Aquarium is focussed mainly on Long Island Sound.
Here's Harley looking at some fish and a really big lobster.
They even have a shark tank.
|Another special exhibit was this albino alligator; there's apparently just 44 of them known in the entire world. Living in South Florida, I have a lot of experience with alligators, and I can tell you this one is demonstrating typical 'gator behavior.|
|Associated with the Africa exhibit was a "Lost Temple" virtual roller coaster ride. Although I wasn't really interested in doing the ride, I did feel compelled to pose with it, and pretend I was in Egypt again.|
