I did use my aquarium ticket though. It was a pretty straight forward venue - follow the path and see everything.
This guy, who looks cute but is poisonous
Turtles with crazy necks
And a walk through tunnel with sharks and other critters swimming around.
The transit pass came in handy for getting there,
As did my feet.
I made it to WalMart a couple times to help get provisions for the ship. Fun but kind of weird to be picking out say, 10 boxes of cereal for people some who are strangers, some who you know. What kind to choose? Will people like Cheerios or Rice Krispies better? We already have lots of flakey cereal which no one seems to like so stay away from that!
One of my goals on shore leave is to call home. Thanks to wifi set up for the tall ships festival I was able to do that quayside with my iPhone and Facetime. I also enjoyed finding a cupcake bakery and a small cafe for a tea and (more) wifi. I didn't enjoy the lack of postcards and stamps. Will have to work on that in our next port, Bay City.
