Yesterday was my first time at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. The aquarium is steps away from the CN Tower, Roger’s Centre and a close walk from Union Station. I went with two friends from school and my sister. DSC_0615DSC_0614

Transfixed and mesmerized on floating fish and other sea life, I find being at aquariums peaceful. At the Ripley’s Aquarium, you are guided through different themes that contain fish and other sea life of that particular body of water. The first large tank feature sea creatures that call the Great Lakes their home. There is an educational component that highlights the endangerment of particular species in these waters due to years and years of industrial fishing. Reminded that things

A conveyor belt guides you through the next portion of the aquarium where you’re introduced to all the salty water creatures – from sharks, turtles, sawfish and other interesting swimmers. Everywhere you look there’s something interesting darting around – I love the perspective you get from seeing a shark from the bottom up.

I am reminded that there is so much life underwater that I only get to see a teensy tiny glimpse of at the aquarium.
