Summer trip - Day 7

Friday was Long Beach Day. We started out at the Aquarium of the Pacific that sits on Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach.

Here are some of the beautiful creatures we saw.

Dane got this Sea Lion to follow him down the glass tunnel. It was if the Sea Lion was playing a game of following the map that Dane was dragging back and forth across the glass.

Dane and Terrence at the "touch tank."

Mason gets brave and touches a String Ray.

Clark watches a Shark swim by.

Dory and Nemo!

Outside we visited the Loreet enclosure. We bought the cup of nectar to feed them.

Next we walked over to the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant.
The whole place is based on the movie "Forrest Gump."
You even have to answer movie trivia to get your refills!

Dane's kids meal served in "Jenny" - the boat from the movie.

Ed ordered a spicy Mai Mai.

I ordered a Stuffed Shrimp. Yum!

The group shot!

After dinner we walked along the harbor and over to the Pier Bridge.

We then drove to the public beach area for the boys to wade and run from the waves.
The water was cold but they had a blast playing around!
