Aquarium

When we got into town, Chris and I went to the NC Aquarium. It was no Monterey Bay, but still a ton of fun. I got to pet sting rays, which was awesome. Some of them were very friendly and kept coming back for more! I did get a little freaked out when one lept halfway out of the pool at me when I wasn't paying attention. Chris wouldn't even get near them - but you all know how much he loves animals...hah

Among some of the cooler animals they had were eels and sharks:They also had a lot of fun places to take your picture, which we obviously took advantage of:

those are some excellent pictures of you and chris! i love petting sting rays--so soothing even though you know they could sting you.

Wow! Great photos!

Yes they were removed, but apparently they grow back. I guess they have to keep checking so they can get them before they can harm people - but they tell you not to get near the tails anyway to be safe
