Penguin walk and dolphin show

Marcus and I had interviews for autumn volunteer positions at the Vancouver Aquarium today, and after that we still had some time left to actually go into the Aquarium. As you would probably have guessed, once there anyway, we just couldn’t return home but had to have to say hi to some of the animals living there.

Today we went to Penguin Point where nearly all African penguins showed us their backs. Not very welcoming, eh? But after a while they all turned around and were looking at their visitors.
During one of the penguin walks later on, we saw Sechelt and Salt Spring even closer than before. While Sechelt was looking around, Salt Spring had a very brisk walk from one end of the beluga habitat to the other and sprinted directly into the carrier waiting at the end of her walk.

Later on we watched Hana and Helen perform during the very last dolphin show of the day. Both were in a very good mood, leaping out of the water even before their show started. And during their show, they did show some great jumps!

There was another species that we could not forget visiting, of course – the harbour porpoises…
