National Aquarium at Baltimore

If you’ve been reading this for any length of time, you know we love the Aquarium.

Our most recent visit, we met this guy in “Australia.”


He was at least the size of a football, and is a nocturnal bird. I kept asking if he should be out during the day with so many gawkers. There was something about his jaw that just made me nervous. He never did move, and was probably more afraid of me than I was of him. Still…


Speaking of Australia, above is a photo of the kids on the observation deck. We saw bats hanging from the ceiling (called Flying Foxes) and a Kookaburra. We don’t always make it to this exhibit, so we spent plenty of time scouting it out.

We found our regular relaxation spot open at the end of the day,


fortuitously just before the last Parrot Talk of the day. What a surprise!


FYI local home schoolers: We purchased our membership last February when a special came in the mail that offered four free extra months. The first visit nearly matched the price of the membership for our family of six.
