Marcus and I took some time off to show my in-laws the place we love to go to and they have heard a lot about – the Vancouver Aquarium.
As there is so much to see, we had a look at the sea otters (my mother-in-law favourites) first. Elfin seemed to be happily snoozing with one of his toys on his belly, whereas the ladies were busy playing in the water.
We then went to Penguin Point to observe all seven African penguins who were standing on their rocks and preening themselves. Just a few minutes later we had the chance to watch one of the penguin walks near the beluga habitat in which only Lillooet came out of her penguin carrier whereas Nelson preferred to stay inside hers. On her walk, Lillooet seemed to be very curious, both looking into the beluga habitat and towards her audience.
Having found a great spot, we stayed on to watch a beluga show in which Qila and Aurora showed a lot of their behaviours.
Finally, we went to the underwater viewing gallery to spend some time with our favourite harbour porpoises – and both Jack and Daisy came by to say hi. Especially Jack seemed to be happy to see us.
Sadly, our time at the Aquarium was over much too quickly, and after a quick bye to Elfin who was having dinner we went back home to continue working…
