The COMPASS LLC had a wonderful time at the Shedd Aquarium this past Saturday. We had about 4 hours to check out all the exhibits and made good use of our time.
They have a few beluga whales. One of which had a baby in December, which prompted me to have this song stuck in my head for a good portion of the day. One Aquarium guest standing next to me at the Beluga tank remarked, "Wow, look! A dolphin swimming with a manatee!". Apparently she missed all the signs...
We swung through the gift shop and Christina and I found (but did not purchase) otter masks.
The LLC pauses for a moment to really think about everything they've seen...
The COMPASS LLC is on a boat.
I brought along a few note cards and a pack of crayons. When we had time at the end of the day, we stopped at a table and everyone drew what their favorite part of the trip was, and explained why.
Mason enjoyed the medusa cniderians...more commonly known as jellyfish for they way they swim.
Maggie found the bride by the belugas to be amusing. Yes, there was a couple that apparently got married at the aquarium.
Matt liked the belugas because he found them to be the most interesting of anything there.
Justin liked the eel because it was easiest to draw on a note card.
Christina was also a fan of the jellyfish and how they were changing colors.
***Not pictured, they had a few windows talking about tectonic activity and ancient oceans. This applied to my group because the course the LLC took last semester was about plate tectonics. However, nothing there was especially photogenic or "drawable".
It was a good trip and everyone had lots of fun.
Until next time.....
