My husband, Kenneth, and I are getting as much as we can out of our Newport Aquarium membership! This past weekend we went to the aquarium to see the Weeki Wachee Mermaids before checking out Books on the Banks. If you haven’t been to the Newport Aquarium yet, first click here to read my blog post about it, then go check it out in person! It’s a wonderful place to learn about aquatic life and it’s fun (you can pet real, live sharks too!).
During this visit I took a lot of fishy portraits, saw one of the Weeki Wachee mermaids swimming in the Coral Reef exhibit (she was so graceful!), petted several sharks and checked out the aquarium’s brand new #SharkWall!
