My Little Marine Biologist

"It does not take much to ignite the spark to a lifelong passion." ~Mama Hen
I think my daughter just might want to be a marine biologist! Her passion for marine life is contagious. She just loves to go to aquariums and learn all about all the lovely sea creatures. As I had mentioned in another post, Little Chick loves to watch documentaries on Penguins, Polar Bears, Whales and so much more. If given a choice she would choose one of those over any cartoon. Today we headed back up to Mystic for a little day trip. We stopped in Old Saybrook for a little "ladies luncheon" and then headed up to the aquarium. It was a freezing day, but sunny. My daughter could not get enough of the touch tanks. She thoroughly enjoys touching the sharks, crabs, and sea stars. Her friends the penguins were too cold to be outside where we usually can see them. However, they had two penguins on display behind a glass wall in a room. As you can see they were intrigued by Little Chick in the picture above. It was a beautiful day!
We love the Beluga whales.


Our new tradition! A lollipop from the gift shop for the long ride home.
Have a happy Smile Sunday!
