|a rare BLUE lobster, it was beautiful!
The whole thing is contained in several different rooms, the total size about the size of a small ranch house. There's even a little gift shop there which had some nice things. It's very charming.
We saw a BLUE lobster and learned some interesting facts through the exhibits. Here Eldy is trying on a pair of goggles that shows you what a lobster sees, which is like looking a one object split into multiple views. He saw a BUNCH of Sparkys, which scared him half to death, because ONE Sparky is plenty enough to handle!
Did we enjoy our tour of the Mount Desert Oceanarium today? We shore did! We highly recommend it! Still waiting to go on a hike, Eldo! (Sigh! he says...) Tomorrow should be a REALLY good day for one, with perfect weather conditions...sunny, highs in the seventies...In all fairness to Eldy, he was ready to go for a hike today, but our mi-fi totally quit working. Sparky didn't want to mess with hours of tech support, so we headed to Bangor, Maine to the nearest Verizon dealer. After an hour of the Verizon guy talking to tech support and trying everything under the sun, rebooting, taking out the sim card, the battery, resetting the mi-fi at Verizon's end, we found out we had a bad sim card. Replaced the card, and voila! We have internet again! Whew! Just a few hours of the thought of not being able to get our mi-fi fixed for days, sent us into a panic! Yay, Verizon! Problem solved! There's only one more problem, we are going through data like crazy. But that's another blog for another day.....Bye!
