Five Shots: Aquarian Adventure

 

20161002_135323

In Phoenix, the new OdySea Aquarium opened this past weekend, so my granddaughter and I spent two hours admiring the fish from around the world which somehow seemed more interesting when you live in the desert. Darned fish wouldn’t hold still, but to the creatures that would, I thought I would share a few.

  1. I love visiting aquariums. They are some of my favorite attractions to check out when I visit someplace new. Glad to see your granddaughter had such a wonderful time. I could watch fish swim around all day.

  2. Ooooh I love underwater shots!! The shark ones are awesome Cindy, but the Great Barrier Reef fish shot is my fave. Your granddaughter is adorable!!

  3. You still have a great eye, Cindy!

    Sharks have got to keep moving or they will drown.

    And your granddaughter’s a cutie!

      1. Read your e-mail. The large number of attachment photos I sent were for variety. Edit my post and use the attachments as you see fit,

        Been following the Lucky 13 thread. So, I’m ready for he 13th.

  4. Wow Cindy these look incredible!! I really like the crabs and the piranha.

    Oh, btw, I know its a shameless plug, but I just posted my next chapter of my book. Would love to hear your thoughts or any feedback 🙂

      1. I’m aiming to finish the thing by the end of the year. So I need to knock out a chapter per month, and I’ll have my ten chapters and a finished first draft. Can’t wait for that, it’ll feel very good!

  5. All great photos as usual Cindy. The first one particularly grabbed my attention and I think that Tiger Fish is beautiful but that last photo of your granddaughter tells a wonderful story and we are privileged to have you share the memory.

  6. I LOVE aquariums. I never get bored. I have been to so many. One of the best was in Hull where they have special deep water areas with tanks behind blackout curtains that you have to press your face against to see the weird creatures inside. It also ends with a lift that goes through the main tank.

    1. That sounds awesome, Abbi. When I visit a city and stay long enough, I try to check out their zoo or aquariums. The one at Hull sounds interesting! For me, the Chicago Aquarium is a fav and the best one I’ve experienced was in Sydney. They had a walk through tunnel through a main tank, similar to your experience. The water tanks, The dark. The colors. How relaxing.

      1. I have been to the Sydney one. It’s great! I do the same if I get to spend time in a city. I can highly recommend the Two Oceans in Cape Town too. They have the best penguin enclosure that you can view above and below water so you can see them diving!
