I heard there was a new sea turtle exhibit at Sea World so I HAD to check it out. After we were inside the park we learned it didn't open until June 18th! I was so disappointed. When we walked by the barricaded entrance we noticed a sign saying there was a preview of the exhibit - and it was opening in an hour! Yay! As you may know, I LOVE turtles so I was thrilled with the beautiful (but fake) coral filled tanks in which the turtles swim. They were quite active and mostly small but they packed lots of personality and happily swam by the windows, seemingly as curious about us as we were them.
The exhibit was still under construction, parts were blocked off but I was just happy to be in the right spot at the right time.
You will be seeing some of these little guys appearing in my artwork one day...
