Darlin’ it’s better, down where it’s wetter
Know what’s the best thing about the aquarium?
It’s been a few months since I’ve been to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ, and since I had two free passes that expired at the end of 2012, it was time to get busy
living going to the aquarium or get busy dying. But really, I don’t need a big excuse to go.
I LOVE the aquarium. I love fish. Wait. Let me elaborate.
I have a tiny tattoo of a wave on my right ankle. I love the ocean and fish so much that I kind of have this secret fantasy that if I ever get another (or several other) tattoos, I could make them all fish and sea-related. And then, my body would sort of be like a walking “Under the Sea”-themed party.
…ok, I know, that’s a little much. But real-talk. They’re the best.
Adventure Aquarium is especially fun because just about every single section has a different ‘Please Touch’ area. Rubbing and feeding sting rays, tiny sharks. starfish, sea anemones, everything good and fun. And, if you have the opportunity to touch sea critters safely, I’d fully recommend inviting your little brother and sister. They’re the ultimate plus two.
Kiley and I even dressed for the theme.
We take aquarium visits seriously.
Highlights this time:
Hunter was attacked (he made it out alive).
It was pole-feeding Thursday, so they were feeding the sharks fishies on a pole. And we got to watch the CARNAGE.
The penguins (who weren’t handling the cold Camden weather too well.)
ALWAYS my favorites, those creatures with tentacles.
And, of course, staring down sharks.
He did not, in fact, come at me.
And, since it’s the season and all, Scuba Santa made an appearance.
The aquarium. I can’t get enough….
But, as I’ve been loafing at my family home for the past week and some change, it’s time to get my act together and head back to Philly. This New Year’s Eve isn’t going to celebrate itself…..
