A Mystic L Day

Is there something fishy here..........
One of the highlights of my Christmas stay in Rhode Island was a day at the Mystic Aquarium with Grandson Bobby.
Mystic is one of the smaller aquariums but it is well designed. Of course having Bob Ballard as one of your sponsors doesn't hurt either.

Bobby and i went around the inside exhibits at least 8 times and each time we found something new and interesting. 

While the shark tank was interesting, who decided to hang out with them was better.


After a while we started getting hungry. Especially near the Jelly Fish. With all of the luminescence in the Comb Jelly tank, we were amazed that we couldn't see some Peanut Bunker Fish for a little Peanut Bunker and Jelly Snack. 

Hey!!!!! I heard someone groaning out there...... OK,,,,, i know it's usually a fluke when one of my funnies get a big laugh. Usually they just flounder around. Then i get all crabby and just clam up.  I'm worried that this behavior might get to be a halibut!!!!!!!
Of course we visited other cool friends while there. Skates, Camo Sharks, Sego's, our favorite Sea Lion, some Moray Eels, and a couple Sea Horses.

I bet some of you are wondering if that cute white Beluga whale at the beginning was rolling over with laughter at one of our clever fish tales..... no such luck. He was doing his daily training. Just outside of the picture is a trainer with a BIG bucket of fish.

These are great photos with your grandson. I feel a trip to Baltimore Aquarium coming on, these photos look so neat.

Quite a run of puns there, good sir.

I thought the top one was a big dead fish :-) :-)

I love going to aquariums but I've never seen a whale or sea lions in any of the ones over here, perhaps it's forbidden here?

Have a great day!

Now, that's a fun thing I never thought about doing at Christmas time. Maybe I will try it next year or the year after.... we'll see. Hope you are home safe and sound.

I love the mystic aquarium, we have been so many times!! Our oldest son lives in Connecticut, so we go often when we visit him.

Great pictures, looks like you had fun!!

I have to admit that I rushed through your entry ! Aquariums have always made me cring and I have no idea why !!
On a happier note, Happy New Year and all the best for 2014.
