|Road sight leaving the aquarium|
I'd heard of Foxwoods. I'd read about it. So hey, why not at least look at it, being 15 minutes away? Foxwoods is like Disney and a super mall including good art, with the background music being the bing ching bing of slot machines. We never even got near the slots... There really is some awesome tribal art, marble and bronze sculptures, along with a reproduction deer skin dress I loved but it was over 1200.00 so I passed. There is Hard Rock Cafe, there is MGM Grand, along with shops and restaurants and andanananananna...It's huge. Too huge, but fun. For two hours.
More my speed was the aquarium. Here; share some of it with me!
|One of three beluga whales|
|A seal being adorable|
|This sea lion is HUGE!!! but still winsome|
|He was being ferocious (really)|
|Penguins either grooming or stimulating oil glands - you choose|
|Cuddly sea horses - they are so strange|
|All I could think of was being stung by something so beautiful|
|Cool and bizzaro jelly fish|
|Awesome octopus and anenomes|
This little girl managed to get her hand or arm in
all of the 'show how big' shots...so.why fight it?
When we were leaving the work sight, we saw three deer walking along through a field/yard. At the road they ran and I was lucky enough to catch this one jumping the wall. First deer I've seen up here...someone must have forgotten to give them the 'MJ is around, hide!' message.
Today is supposed to be rainy and...gee, surprise - cold, well, not really if it reaches 56 (hey, I'm trying to fit in here). But right now, under 4 blankets, one of them electric, warm is immediate and relative. The cute bartender from Foxwoods lives an hour inland from here and told us the temperature was in the 70's yesterday! Compared to 'Make a fire! this house is cold!' on the work site. Oh, is this whining? Life is still very, very good.
