We are staying in WA very close to the Canadian border, so yesterday, we ventured forth to the Vancouver Aquarium. It took about 20 minutes to pass through customs.
Isn't their flag pretty in flowers
One of the first things I had to get used to was the metric system. This is my speed sign
The Vancouver Aquarium is located in Stanley Park. It is beautifully landscaped with parking all around. They have an outside area that contains dolphins. These are Pacific white-bellied dolphins. Never seen these before.
beluga whale (this one just had a baby) The baby is more gray. It only feeds for about 20 seconds before it must surface for air.
I love sea otters. They are so playful and cute
The indoor areas have some fantastic displays. There is a Tropical area that has birds and butterflies. We never did see the 2 toed sloth.
One of many butterflies
I think this guy is really cool looking
Always thought these were just called jellyfish, but they are sea nettles!
I think everyone needs some flowers in their life each day, so these are for you
and this one too
Hope you all enjoyed coming along to British Columbia with me, until next time
