Maritime Aquarium

Yesterday I took my niece and a former student to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT. We have two aquariums in CT. One in Mystic and one in Norwalk. Mystic seems to be a more known aquarium. I enjoy them both...

We went specifically because I had gotten a free pass for 4 people AND they have a new Meerkat exhibit. I adore meerkats. I have watched all of Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet, the original series. For some reason never caught the New Generation one..

They were the most adorable, cutest animals EVER!!!!!

We saw lots of fun things....my other favorites are otters. They only had one and he was swimming so fast, I couldn't get a picture.

My favorite marine animals are sharks. I'm fascinated by them. This aquarium only has sand tiger sharks, but they had a huge sea turtle. Alot of their exhibits focus on the life in Long Island Sound.

We ended our day with a great lunch and headed home. It was a good day, cuz even though I wasn't able to find yarn, I spent the day with two great little girls and I got to see meerkats and now have my own...
