Gulfarium & Cindy Lou

This post is heavy on photos. Please allow time for loading.

On Monday, we had quite the adventure. We went down to Fort Walton Beach and enjoyed a stay-cation at the Gulfarium. The Gulfarium is a local aquarium that highlights Gulf coast sea life as well as some more exotic animals. Today's photos are the outdoors animals. Tomorrow, I will share some of the coral reef fish and animals.

A little crab from the Touch Pool. He pinched onto my younger son when he tried to touch him. Rest assured that both boy and crab are fine. My son said it didn't hurt, just surprised him.

In other news, Cindy Lou has become a permanent fixture in our home. Yes, we are now a family of one dog and THREE cats. Lucy and Magnus absolutely love our new family member. Mouser is indifferent. She had her first vet visit two weeks ago and she goes in again on Monday for her first vaccinations.
