I love Aquariums. Like I FREAKING LOVE THEM! They are totally cool and I love visiting them. Granted, I have only ever been to the Seattle Aquarium and the Oregon Aquarium, but still. I love visiting them. The two highlights of every visit to me are the otters (both sea and river) and the touch pools. I love the touch pools and playing with all of the aquatic tidal sea-life. I LOVE the otters!! They are by far my favorite thing! So cute, adorable, and funny. With those adorable whiskers, shiny black noses, dainty paws, and totally cuddle-able bodies and faces, the otters are amazing. I just LOVE them!
Ok, enough about my weird obsession with otters. While in Seattle, Mr. Tux and I went adventuring to the Aquarium, and of course we had to visit the otters first! We were even lucky enough to catch the otter feeding time, and I have the videos to proof it. Besides the otters, we saw lots of adorable fishies, and explored the tidal touch pools where Kiera fingers touched sea-stars, star fish, anemones, and other assorted sea life. We had a blast! I am already counting down to our vacation to the Oregon coast this summer and a trip to the Oregon aquarium with Lobstermom. Sea lion kisses and backstage passes here we come!
