It was VERY interesting and FUN! We finally get to the Aquarium about 7 or so.
Once we get there Howat informs us that there was a slight uproar when it was announced that Michelle Obama WAS NOT going to be there!!
See? She was supposed to be there. I wonder, secretly, if the Government possibly shutting down had anything to do with it? Hmmm. Stupid government.
We had some great food. Ribs, chicken, shrimp & grits, spinach salad and cornbread. Dessert tables were set up inside the Aquarium after dinner. The aquarium was opened up for us after.
This was the main auditorium where dinner and awards were given. We then went to a 4D showing. It was pretty cool!
After that, we started at the petting area.
The stingrays felt slimy whereas the sandsharks were, well, SANDY! LOL Here are some other shots around the aquarium:
I really enjoyed this Aquarium. Here are the girls on the "Dance Floor"
They had fun and was sorry to see it all end. On our way out, we stopped and took these group shots:
We then walked all the way back to the hotel. We even started "Second Lining!"
Some of the folks were asking if we were going to have the "Arrow" BACK to the hotel! LOL It was a fun Friday night. Saturday, oh my, another busy day sightseeing. I will be back with those stories and pictures!!
