Sorry I did not post a status update sooner everyone, I was so exhausted from yesterday that an update was just physically and mentally impossible.

So, the aquarium was AMAZING fun! I wish my phone had enough memory for all the photos and vids I took! We saw sharks and fish and rays obviously, but we saw birds, otters, gators, snakes, frog, hedgehogs and komodo dragons to. 

FLIPPING. KOMODO. DRAGONS.

We went in one of those dome/bubble things where you feel like you are inside the enclosure and it came right over... o.o

Oh they are so amazing! I also saw creatures that reminded me of Gozilla monsters,  you can definately see how the ocean and its creatures inspired things like Godzilla and the like. 

We got to pet sting rays and skates in the petting area. They feel a bit like soft, wet, slimey silk or something... but with powerful muscles and fat underneath. A very unique feeling. One of the friendliest ones was named Fred. XD

I love Fred. To bad he already has a wife and child. XD

We say otters and seals too! Otters have inspired me to draw Algea again and the seals have given me ideas for mer behavior!

Afterwords we went to one of our favorite places to eat, a buffet place called "Captain George`s."

Usually it takes forever to get in, but this was a nkce early Thursday evening, so it was quiet, no line, AND NO ONE WAS HOGGING OR HOVERING OVER THE POPULAR FOODS!

Their mashed potatos are to die for. My family likes the seafood there, I like the other things. XD 

The food is AMAZING.


All in all, it was a grand day with lots of fan girling over gross creatures and terrifying beasts. 

Lots of inspiration now too...

That sounds like a ton of fun! Rays are great, they do have a hard to describe feel. I went to a small aquarium a while ago and the fish were waht gave me the most inspiration, I hope someday I can get around to going to a larger one~

Oh yeah! 

The one we went to was a fairly small one too. Biggest animals they had their were sand sharks,hardly longer then a human. Gorgeous none the less.

Sounds like it :) sharks are interesting creatures, thoughI don't know as much about them as I'd like.

That's not a bad idea, I never tuned in for shark week much since I don't watch tv, though that's part of why the internet is so great~
