Saturdays and Sundays are usually really busy days for the Vancouver Aquarium. Therefore Marcus decided that he wanted to have some quieter time for his birthday, and so we went to the Vancouver Aquarium a day earlier.
Jack was already waiting, and Marcus both took some pictures of him and played with this cute harbour porpoise. After a while, Daisy came down, too, and posed for some pictures. That was a really special birthday treat!
Later there also was a training session in which Jack and Daisy got some enrichment toys to play with. Together they even collected one of the toys from the bottom of their habitat. And then Jack picked it up again to show it to us. His birthday present for Marcus?
On that day we also watched two dolphin shows in which those beautiful ladies Hana and Helen were really active and playful. Hana even picked up a ring and brought it back to her trainer Nicky.
Elfin had an enrichment toy, too, holding in his paws. Cute, eh?
We also watched a penguin walk starring Sechelt and Tofino. Don’t those African penguins look simply adorable while waddling along their path? Unfortunately, their walk is over much too soon.
At the end of the day, we made our way back to Jack and Daisy’s habitat. There we played with Jack, and shortly before we had to go, even Daisy said goodbye to us.
it is always great to see them both.
Once again, this was a fabulous day and probably Marcus’ best pre-birthday experience.
