I recently went to the National Aquarium in Baltimore for the first time, and it was amazing! I couldn’t stop squealing like a little kid, amazed by all the beauty and wonder around me. I was completely mesmerized by the puffins (I mean, who wouldn’t be?), and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw dolphins in person! Unfortunately, the dolphins moved so fast, and I was so far away, that I couldn’t get a good picture of them.

I always had this idea that animals at zoos were in cages. But at the aquarium, I saw turtles missing limbs, dolphins being rehabilitated, and so many animals being cared for. Maybe it was because it was the sea versus land, but most of what I saw was educational.

It took us about three to go through the aquarium, and we didn’t even get to one of the exhibits! Afterwards we walked around a bit, but with an hour drive back to DC, we didn’t stick around too long. However, we’re definitely going back to Baltimore, next time to Fort McHenry!
