Maritime Aquarium

Sunday Stroll

My graduate class on Long Island Sound took a field trip to the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk yesterday.  The aquarium has educational displays of animals, scientific research, historic boats and fishing industries, and a large area devoted to the Sound.

The Norwalk River runs by the aquarium.  There are picnic tables along the river so visitors can enjoy the view.

To see who else is strolling today, visit the Quiet Country House.

  1. That was a nice change of pace. I wish I had more in the way of museums, botanical gardens, etc. in my area in which to occassionally take my Sunday afternoon walk.

    That sea turtle has a very serious expression on his face. So cute!

    Aquariums are always such fascinating places to visit. Thanks for letting me stroll along with you.

  3. ohhhhhhhhhh, thanks so much for sharing those underwater views! Is that a loggerhead? No wonder you, your hubby, and your brothers enjoyed that Blue Whale show so much!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HONEY!

    Love,
    Mom
