Corpus Christi Trip (April 2006)
"Visiting the Texas State Aquarium"
"She got on Payless..."
Me, I got on gator shoes!
Nothing else to say about this one.
I didn't like his smile, but I'm not telling him that.
These fish were weird. They *barely* moved in their tank, and looked almost motionless. Very, very cool!
These bad boys were very soothing and calming to watch move in the water. Too bad they'd sting you to death!
I don't know, it looked cool at the time.
"Training the Dolphins"
We were lucky enough to watch the dolphins during a training session. This is *not* the same as the dolphin show, and is very entertaining in its own way.
In this picture, the trainer is telling the dolphins to do a circle underwater. They communicate with the dolphins via hand signals and by tapping on the glass.
They reward the dolphins with good behaviour and ingnore unwanted behaviour.
