My Trip to the Aquarium

Po wrote a fantastic story about his trip to the aquarium! Check it out below:

Yay! I woke up and yelled ‘’I can’t wait to get to the aquarium today, with my brother Kestrel and uncle Matt.’’ Uncle Matt told us to get everything ready before we hopped in the car. All of us were so noisy because we were looking forward to going to the aquarium.

 When we got there we hopped out of the car and I said, “I can’t wait to go inside.” When you enter inside there are fish tanks filled with lots of different kinds of fish. There is a park and a cafe where you can sit and have a coffee or hot chocolate while having a little snack.

 First we went to see the big fish tanks and i saw a stingray, squid, octopus, and shark. There were some people swimming underwater, feeding the fish even the ones that were camouflaged and which were really hard to see. Looking around at all the different types of fish Kestrel and I decided to see if we can count all the different types of fish in the tanks. It was kind of exciting at first but then got a little hard because there were just so many of them, swimming from side to side. I’m pretty sure I counted 3 of the same fish twice. So we moved on.

 Moving from one end of the aquarium to the other to saw more of the other fish. We finally found the habitat where the penguins were, they looked so cute and cuddly it was so unreal. After that we went back out, went for a little car ride around Mission Bay and went home.

  1. Kia ora Po,
    Thanks for sharing your story about going to the Aquarium. I recently took my 2 nieces to Kelly Tarltons, I am thinking that is where you went to. They are 7 and 11 and just like you were really excited! We saw stinkray, squid and sharks too. I don't think I saw an octopus though. I really enjoyed watching the penguins, they look so funny when they walk and slide down the ice to the water. Great writing Po.
