This L.I.F.E. Toronto session we were given the opportunity to plan our own social outing, so we obviously planned a trip to the new Ripley’s Aquarium. We selected the date, picked the meeting times and researched the aquarium.
Finally November 26th rolled around and we were on our merry way. It was not smooth sailing for all of us, Jessie’s Wheel Trans broke down on the way but that did not stop her from getting there. Once we had the whole group together we were ready to get the tickets and check out the underwater creatures. One thing we were surprised to see was Rick Mercer hanging out at the aquarium. Usman was brave enough to say ‘hey,’ and Jenny even got an autograph.
Some of the highlights of the day were getting a close look at sharks, stingrays, and jellyfish, oh my. Some of us even climbed through a tunnel that went right through one of the tanks. We figured out what our weight was worth if we were tuna and we pet some horseshoe crabs! We stopped for a quick lunch at the cafe and caught the 1:15 p.m. show at the Rainbow Reef. The rest of the day was spent moseying along and taking in all the sights.
It was a fantastic day and we cannot wait to go back!! To see the rest of our photos please click here.
