For something a bit different, let’s go to an aquarium. Talk about big, expensive buildings to create and maintain! Especially with all that water. That said, there’s definitely something about the experience of being within the water while safely dry & able to watch fishes swimming by.
While in Baltimore for the World Fantasy Convention, I stopped by the Maryland Aquarium. Some of the items which particularly caught my eyes weren’t actually the aquatic life but light-water installations.
Or the immense skeleton hanging in mid-air.
But there certainly were ample fishes and other aquatic creatures as well.
In all, an enjoyable time — and educational as well, although I admit that wasn’t my prime objective. Next week, back to historic sites, but for now enjoy the water.
