And in front of the manatees. He really liked this part...he seemed fascinated by them.
And now the underwater part:
Yes, Dakin was underwater for the very first time. Did you really think I had dunked him?
He absolutely LOVED this little fish tube.
He kept looking up, so I tilted his chair back so he could see better. I think he could have spent all day in there. We were lucky in that a scuba diver dropped in and started feeding the fish. He kept waving at Dakin, who kept telling the diver 'hi.' Dakin loved it!
We finally fished (this is what little sleep will do to you, sorry...) ourselves out of the fish tube and moved on. There was a shark tube as well, but we didn't get any great pics. There was, however, a jaguar who couldn't have cared less that Dakin was on the other side of the glass from him. For you newbies, Dakin's next to Jane, our day nurse.
So basically, it was an amazing trip. We got to eat lunch in a rainforest, go scuba diving with angelfish and sharks, and visit Madagascar. I have been so looking forward to this trip...I'm glad we finally got to go!
