Wild Lights is very cool, well, it is if you like lights, the pictures should be self explanatory. There was also a "petting" tank at the aquarium, we got to touch a horseshoe crab (the topside only) and a bamboo shark (Hugh tried to pick it up). Thanks to a view of the underside of the crab, I now know where the inspiration came for just about every weird threatening alien in any movie (what is that). The bamboo shark had about a two inch stripe of very rough skin on the top of it running lengthwise, but the rest of the skin was very soft. No pictures of the shark, the light was low, and I didn't think I could get a shot through the water.
first stop, the gingerbread cottage.
double J and I right before the witch came out of the cottage.
do you know how to work that thing?
sure, Hugh makes one little comment, and JennyJitterbug has us both arrested.
yes, that is my head in the alligator's mouth, maybe being arrested wasn't so bad.
Viv, check it out - a turtle.
a turtle, where?
right over there, quick before it hides!
while everyone else was checking out the crawfish, I was making friends with this guy here. we kind of watched each other through the glass for at least three minutes, until a herd of immature humans came over yelling "look it's Dori" at the other fish in the tank.
back at the gift shop, I got this picture of Viv & Maegmariel. Maegmariel is there, ducking down behind the cash register.
