A rainy afternoon at the Aquarium

Together with our boys we spent a great afternoon at the Vancouver Aquarium, exploring once again its various galleries.

We saw so many animals, and in the Amazon we were especially lucky to see one of the sloths really up close.
Then we had to stop at the cute Pacific spiny lumpsuckers in BC Waters, too.

Despite the rain we observed both harbour seals and a Steller sea lion swimming in the water whereas another sea lion was sitting outside on the platform.

But we spent most of the time at one of the underwater viewing areas. Which one? Well, just have a look at the pictures…


A rainy afternoon at the Vancouver Aquarium

Living in Metro Vancouver means having more rain than in a lot of other places – but still, I rather have rain than snow.

Anyway, on this lovely rainy day, we headed towards the Vancouver Aquarium for our weekly dose of animals. However, unlike the two seagulls, we were not really tempted to stand outside in the rain and therefore made our way to the underwater viewing area to watch the two dolphins from there.

On our way up from there, we passed the newts which were very busy…
We also said hi to the arapaima in the Tropical Zone – and went on to have a look at the strawberry anemone and those cute little Pacific spiny lumpsuckers. Aren’t they adorable?
