If you ever want to see a bunch of grown people turn back into the wondrous excited children they must have been, just put them in a pair of waders and let them interact with Belugas and excellent trainers! It was *almost* as much fun to watch our participants in the Belugas exhibit yesterday as it will be to actually get to do it ourselves today!  The pictures help capture the moments, but these folks have made strong connections with these animals and understand much more about their anatomy and behavior than they could ever learn just by reading a book or watching a show. Several left the program with tears of joy in their eyes.

We had dinner at Mystic Pizza – made famous by a movie of the same title with Julia Roberts. Those of us who are old enough to remember the movie before it was available on DVD were amazed by how many of the “younger” folks knew all about it! The pizza was EXCELLENT.

Monday takes us back to the Mystic aquarium, then up to the New England aquarium, our northernmost destination!
