So sorry that it has taken me a bit longer than I had anticipated to get the third installment of my trip to Boston up! I usually tinker with these posts when I have a free moment at work, and as we ramp up for our busiest few months, free moments simply have not been in the cards.
Day four in Boston was one of my favourites (although let's be honest, I loved them all)! We went to the New England Aquarium and saw lots of adorable and interesting animals! Anyone who's known me for longer than a month knows of my fondness for penguins, and here there plenty! We also had lunch in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and did some wandering around and exploring in that area. There is so much to see, do, and eat there, so we didn't get the opportunity to see, do, and eat all of the things, although I certainly like to think that we tried.
The aquarium was dark, so a lot of my pictures didn't turn out so fantastic, but here are some that did! There are lots of fascinating animals - like seahorses, penguins, turtles, eels, frogs, and all manners of fish! If you're in the area, or are planning on going, I definitely recommend putting this place on the top of your to-do list!
One of my favourite parts of the aquarium was the stingray tank! You could reach in and pet them. They were very silky. :)
I am really and truly not a big fan of jellyfish, but sometimes they just look so pretty.
It was so cute, because these water sprinklers were on, and a lot of the penguins were just relaxing close to them. Some even looked like they were napping.
Turtles ... um ... snuggling?
This sea lion looked so happy!
A statue of Samuel Adams just outside of Faneuil Hall. Mr. Adams, there's an excellent selection of beers made in your name. God bless, America.
