When we were on Roanoke Island, we also went to the aquarium. I know it's not a historical place, but I wanted to write about it.
My favorite part of the whole aquarium was the otters. They were playing and swimming all over the place. I also saw turtles (my mom's favorite), fish and alligators.
They had some touch exhibits with shells, crabs, starfish and stingrays. I only played with the shells.
There were some really HUGE sharks in an exhibit called "The Graveyard of the Atlantic".
I came home with an otter and mom a sea turtle stuffed animals from the gift shop. Mom also got a Christmas ornament to put on the tree at Christmas. When we were done, we went over to the fossil dig and found some shark teeth. That was pretty cool.
MORE NOTES FROM MOM...
NC has 3 aquariums to choose from, so no matter what beach you go to this summer, you have an aquarium near you. It's a great family time place to go.
