I’m a card carrying member of the National Aquarium. Have been since I moved here 3 years ago. I like to go when nobody else is around, or at least when it’s slow. That’s one of the reasons I keep my membership up; there’s always a few days a season where members get to go in early, or after the place closes.
Today was a members morning, and I got a peek at the new exhibit, Black Tip Reef. Yaaaaay!
It looks beautiful, and bonus; I got to see Calypso the sea turtle! I have a total girl crush. Ever since I found out – during a public feeding session – that she likes brussel sprouts? It’s like we’re sisters from different misters.
And because it was at 8am, I got to miss most of the hellacious heat. Win!
