One day, back in the dark depths of winter, we took a trip to the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. We had been before but were due for a dose of penguins, and seals, and frogs, oh my. In addition to the regular exhibits, they had touch tanks where visitors could pet manta rays and nurse sharks. I did; Duncan didn't; rays are slimy; sharks feel like sandpaper. We watched the visiting meerkats, checked out the river otters, and ogled the moon jellies. We caught an IMAX movie about sharks, which was Duncan's first movie in a theater. It was a fun day out; a day of ocean creatures is a great antidote to the mid-Winter blues.
