After Lindz's early appointment we crossed the street into Pier Paradise.
Makes me think of Forrest Gump
The Aquarium wasn't open yet and there weren't hardly any stores open so just looked around.
Had to stop and get my fortune (from Big with Tom Hanks)
There were 2 stores open that we went to. First one that sold all different kinds of shells and things made out of them. And then our most favorite EVER, a store filled completely with hats!!!! We were in there forever and had WAY too much fun.
* Afterwards we went to this crepe restaurant....oh my heck....so delicious!!!
Our SCRUMPTIOUS Menu
Emma - Turkey, Jack Cheese, Pesto, Avocado!
Lindz - Ham and Eggs
On to the Aquarium!!
Wearing one of her NEW hats. Love it
First thing you see once you go down the elevator...amazing
See the bumps on this one...unique
We were walking by this exhibit not really knowing what it was when we saw a little girl inside. Freaked us out....then we found we could go in as well. Fun!
There were two tunnels to go through...the first showing the animals that only go to a certain depth, therefore being a little lighter.
This is an octopus
Scuba diver...checking things out
Underwater Pill Bug...cool, much bigger than regular land ones
Then came the "second, darker, deeper sea dwellers" tunnel. The tunnel where all the SHARKS were....you know how scared of sharks Lindz is right?
Yea for Lindz! Two sharks even swam right over her head...a little freaky when you aren't expecting it. She made it all the way through.*
Once done with the tunnels we moved on to the other displays. We even got to pet the sting rays. This one came right up to be petted. Cute.
Off to do more Touring! Busy day ahead
