The Georgia Aquarium
The underwater tunnel leading to the main observation room was overwhelming. There were so many notable fish passing by so closely overhead it took one’s breath away. It was spectacular.
We headed to another group of exhibits. I usually use these field trips as an educational tool, but this time around it seemed that the information was either too broad and general so as to be something we had already covered several times over, or so specific as to have little long term relevance in the overall scheme of things. And I think I was distracted by the moral dilemma I was with which I was struggling.
We didn’t stay much longer. Skye and I talked about what I had been thinking about on the way home. And then we had a family discussion about it when Cindy got home. I did more research on the matter and found out that two whale sharks had already died at the Georgia aquarium. I was reminded of the killer whale tragedy that occurred a couple of years ago at Sea World. But I also remember my many fond and permanent memories I had at various marine parks growing up and of course seeing the smile and wonderment on Skye’s face as she observes these other creatures.
