Some friends came in from California. They’ve been staying up the road a couple miles from me at the Silverton.
One of my favorite things is the bigger than huge saltwater 117,000-gallon reef aquarium with more than 4,000 tropical fish, and three species each of stingrays and sharks. Awesome cat TV. You feel like you’re snorkeling without getting wet.
You can walk all the way around the aquarium taking pictures and emerge into the Mermaid Lounge where two 500-gallon jellyfish aquariums cuddle up against a beautiful mermaid sculpture and change colors as you’re watching in awe.
Oh and for you Outdoorsy folk, meaning men, there’s Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World.
