Now it’s Friday and again, we slept in before getting a late start out. I had a hard time deciding what we would do this day but eventually decided on the Florida Aquarium. Despite the high admission price it was well worth it. In addition to the aquarium exhibits, they had an outside water play area that the kids played in.
The Aquarium offers scuba lessons which they call “Swimming with the Fishes” – that was interesting to watch b/c they have a tank where you can look at people learning to scuba.
Here is the “No Bone Zone” where you can touch some of the specimens.
Then, the kids went to the water play area for awhile to cool off.
Now, Kaleya was playing with the water squirt machines spraying other kids. I predicted that if she got sprayed she would not like it. Sure enough, she got sprayed and I hear her over there crying so went to see what was wrong. After she calmed down though she went right back over to get in the mix again.
After the aquarium we then headed to Honeymoon Island Beach. I wanted to go to a beach that was not filled with tourists and Honeymoon Island certainly was not. The shore was rocky, but overall the kids enjoyed it – they actively searched and found many seashells and began a small collection.
And that was the end to another great day.
