OK - we may have been pushing it. We decided to try to squeeze in the Norwalk Maritime Aquarium into our big adventure day. It's a lovely aquarium that focuses mostly on the local species of aquatic life - native to the Long Island Sound.
The touch a shark or stingray tank is always a popular stop.
Primogeniture met us at the Aquarium and both boys posed for a silly picture of a two-headed turtle. It was adorably cute when they posed in elementary school. Now that they're teenagers there's nothing left but to come up with something silly. Gotta love boys!
Both boys spent some significant time mesmerized by the salt water living reef with anenomes, clown fish, yellow and blue tangs and more. It was spectacular.
We were all enthralled with the very rare blue lobster. Such a brilliant gorgeous color.
The jellyfish photos were my favorite of the day. It's not a bad shot for my camera phone. These are always so fascinating to watch. They seem so surreal.
We had a great day and managed to pack all three outings into one day plus a sit down lunch at a wonderful Italian eatery near the Beardsley Zoo. I'm not sure I'd try a trifecta again any time soon - but I'm glad we did it today. We managed to get Judy to her train - even with one detour - and call it a very successful day! I hope you enjoyed tagging along.
