Last weekend Cat and I got to travel to Corpus Christi for Molly and Cody’s wedding! We wanted to turn our trip in to a little “vacay” so we went a day early and turned in to total tourists. When we were driving down I made up our minds that we were going to the aquarium while we were there!
We got there right before the dolphin show started and had to squeeze our way between the spectators to get a good look!
If you didn’t know, when it comes to animal attractions (zoos, aquariums, wildlife parks, etc.) I turn in to a little kid. Giddy with excitement and I may let out the occasional “WOW!” or “LOOK AT THAT!” Cat on the other hand, was a little less enthused. Maybe this will help you understand.
After we got hot and sweaty watching the dolphins, we headed indoors and headed under the sea!
Sidenote: Who loves that song from The Little Mermaid? “Unda da sea! Unda da sea! Darlin’ it’s bettah, down where it’s wettah, unda da sea!”
The jellies were first and I could have watched them all day! They just floated around so effortlessly and elegantly.
Aside from getting to see the cool fish/fishes, Cat’s commentary throughout the entire aquarium was splendid! She looked in the tank with the jellyfish and said “Do you think that they are having fun?”
We continued to walk around the dark hallways that were illuminated by huge glass walls that made up the separation between us and the water.
They also had this man-eater. Since this was the Texas aquarium, and this was in the “marshland” environment, I am pretty sure this dude’s sister lives in the slough beside our house. That means we are moving, and I am not going outside without a bazooka! Can’t be too careful these days.
When we first saw the porcupine, Cat said “I am pretty sure he is dead.” Then she tried to watch real close and see if he was breathing, which was followed by “Yup, he’s dead, do you think we should tell someone?” I just calmly pointed to a sign that said “Nocturnal” and under her breath she muttered “Well that explains it.”
I think our next stop will be SeaWorld in San Antonio for Priscilla and Chip’s wedding coming up soon! Anyone want to go with?
