Yesterday Gavin, Zach, Natalie and I went to the New England Aquarium in Boston. They thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially riding the subway. There's a special exhibit of jellyfish at the museum, and a tank in which you can touch stingray. That was fun. They also have a special kind of tiny penguins- incredibly adorable. The big tank had an enormous sea turtle, and Zach spotted an eel. The big tank also had the usual small sharks and puffer fish. The top of the tank is off limits right now for reconstruction.

I was also impressed with the beautiful coral displays they had-- unicorn fish, blue starfish, clown fish, and lion fish. Really great.
