We can’t stay in the city without going to “The Bubble” aka Science World or the Aquarium. We met up with Erin, Matthew and Brendan to visit Science World. Of course us home learners forgot that it was spring break and hadn’t expected it to be as busy as it was! Darn it! We made the most of our visit however and saw just about everything, even it wasn’t seen in depth or with patience.
The highlight of the day was actually leaving Science World for some fresh air at a near by park.
It was just Leif and I when we went to the aquarium the morning of our flight home. Lily hung out with my dad since she had only just started eating again after falling ill the day before. It was actually really nice moving around the aquarium at Leif’s pace. We took our time. Here are a few images from our morning. (click to see images bigger or more of them)
I don’t really want to get into in right now and right here but I have very conflicting feelings about the aquarium. On the one hand I’d much rather all these living creatures to be in their natural homes, living their natural lives but on the other hand, I see that helping city children (and adults) see, understand and connect with these creatures helps them care about them. When people care about nature, they’re more willing to protect it. sigh.
