We got up early and took the bus Saturday morning and got into Boston around lunch time. After checking into the hotel and grabbing lunch we met up with some friends and headed to the aquarium. John used to have a salt water aquarium and is always interested in visiting aquariums any chance he gets :)
The aquarium had a huge cylinder shaped tank that had tons of fish including the turtle above and the sand tiger shark below! There was a ramp around the tank and you could walk around it in circles so you really got to see everything in the tank. They even had question and answer sessions at the top.
This aquarium had their sick area behind glass so you could see what went on. They had two turtles in isolation tanks and even had the turtles' charts posted. One of the poor turtles had to have a lung biopsy!
The Parker hotel where we were staying is supposed to be the birthplace of Boston cream pie so we definitely had to try some. It's not as pie-like as the name sounds, really more like a cake but it was still good.
My first trip to Boston turned out to be so much fun, we'll definitely have to go back sometime when there's not snow all over the ground :)
