During our Oregon stay we visited the Portland Aquarium.
|Fish and other aquatic animals were throughout.|
Spending a couple of hours there.
|Time together with cousins, nieces, and nephews is special.|
The aquarium also had other reptiles and amphibians.
|Snakes are not Christine's favorite, but she did okay taking pictures at least.|
The best feature was the ability to get hands on and touch the many pools that had a great diversity of animals.
The biggest pool was deeper than one could reach!!
Each animal had a unique texture and feel to it.
Shark, rays, fish, starfish and continued amazement!!
The kids did amazing, gently touching the sharks, bat rays, anemones, fish, and starfish but were anxious about feeding them. (Change settings to HD for best picture.)
Everyone fed the bat rays and giggles were heard throughout the lunch hour after which we left with wet stinky clothes.
