Family TIme Under the Sea


This weekend, my Sister, Son, Daughter-in-law and Grandson went the Cleveland Aquarium.

 

We had a wonderful time, watching the sea creatures (and a couple of land creatures) and remembering the importance of other species in our world.

 

Watching my grandson, and all the other children (and grown-ups) learning new things, exploring a new world was both exhilarating and oddly peaceful, as was walking under sharks and other fish through a huge plexiglass tube running through the aquarium.  It was amazing to see sharks and barracuda going right over your head.  It was also dizzying and little weird, but one of the most incredible experiences.

 

Here’s a small view of what we experienced.

 

Enjoy!
