Super Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium mean getting up early for us – well, we do not have to but we absolutely want to be there when the gates open at 8:30 am. The Aquarium then is still fairly quiet, and we can enjoy some time with Jack and Daisy before any other visitor arrives at this part of the Aquarium.
By the way, we were the very first visitors to get into the Aquarium today – does this surprise you? – and we were on our way to the harbour porpoises when we, as usual, stopped at Elfin’s habitat first to say hi to him. Elfin looked at us and even came out of the water for a short moment.
On we went to Jack and Daisy who both came down to the underwater viewing area. Especially Daisy spent a lot of time at the windows, looking at and into our cameras so that we could get some great pictures of this pretty lady.
Jack and Daisy were also interacting a lot with each other, which was really good to see.
Then it was time to leave as we wanted to watch some programs which – we have to confess – we had never seen before, as for instance Eel-lectric Lights and Scuba Claus. And both were super exciting – so definitely worth this visit!
We also paid Schoona a visit – isn’t she beautiful? -, saw pretty amazing seahorses, Banggai cardinalfish and the ever amazing garden eels.
Outside we watched several dolphin shows, featuring Hana and Helen.
Back at Jack and Daisy’s, where we spent the remaining time before the Aquarium closed, I also showed Daisy my newly purchased harp seal plushie which she really looked at several times.
Anyway, just as a side note, not only were we the first visitors in the Aquarium, we also were the very last to leave…
