Baltimore Aquarium

Pacific FishTook a really random road trip with the Shepherd today to the Baltimore Aquarium. We got there with no problems thanks to the GPS gods. You have to buy a ticket to get in at a certain time, so we got the 3:15 admittance and to see the dolphin show at 5:00.

Since it wasn’t anywhere near 3:15, we had plenty of time to check out the Inner Harbor. Last time I was there was probably 1991, so a lot has changed. Everything seemed pretty new and clean around the harbor. Every restaurant imaginable was there as well as an ESPN Zone and the most massive Barnes and Noble I’ve ever seen. Their bathrooms were really weak, smelled really bad.

It turned out to be quite a warm day today, so walking around outdoors in the end of December wasn’t nearly as bad as it could’ve been. There are also many historic ships to check out there too, but didn’t take any of the tours this time.

The aquarium was very cool. A little too packed at times, keep getting elbowed by people but the animals were really cool. Sharks were really cool, so was this one gigantic turtle I saw. Taking photos was tough, with the lighting and the thick glass of the tanks, but I did manage a couple of ok shots.

The dolphin show was pretty cool too. Not quite as nice as the one I saw at San Diego Sea World, but still fun to watch. After the dolphin show, the place really cleared out and we were able to go back and check out the exhibits that were a bit too busy early in the day. So that really worked out.
