Leeson and I (Zaneta) joined homeschoolers from the Miami-Palm Beach, FL, area at Miami Seaquarium. We found the staff’s presentation about marine life very informative. The kids were given a “quest” and taken to different exhibits with the staff.
We stayed about two hours after the presentation to see all the sights: dolphins, sea lions, sharks and a killer whale (Orca). Notice the black shape atop the Orca's nose? That's a Seaquarium staffer! And the splash -- well, that's how some visitors stay cool when they visit the Orca show.
Of course, with all the brightly colored parrots and gliding stingrays, Leeson was attracted to the water guns (on a pretend pirate ship) and completely soaked a couple of kids who enthusiastically returned the favor even though none of the kids spoke the same language.
