Mary wanted to visit the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium just down the road from our place so yesterday that was our agenda. Amazing, impressive, informative, captivating, are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind. It is truly an aquarium North Carolina is proud of. This is evident in the appearance, the respect shown for the exhibits, and by the host of volunteers who do such wonderful work at this world class facility. If you ever visit Atlantic Beach plan to spend a day at the aquarium, it's the best bargain on the coastline.

Although I tried my best pictures fail to grasp the wonder of the place.

You stand behind eight inches of glass while the sharks swim past.

Fish I'd never seen before are there.

Volunteers answer your questions with enthusiasm and knowledge.

We attended a workshop on snakes which you could touch if your nerves would allow. Mary stayed in her seat. This snake looks to be getting just a little too friendly with the instructor.

He doesn't look very friendly does he? Glad we have eight inches of glass between us.

It was a delightful day, full of learning and new experiences, the type of day you don't soon forget.

Today we are off in search of the wild horses. Wish us luck.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels Tony.
