We knew one of the highlights of our trip would be to explore the Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan. It is one of the largest aquariums in the world, featuring a GIANT central tank that houses an array of sea life and the world’s biggest fish, the whale shark. Not one whale shark either, but three! We were mainly excited to watch Evelyn’s reaction to all the excitement. She did not disappoint us;) The day was smoking hot, so we limited our time outside in the Ocean Expo Park. We made our way around using the various ramps and elevators with the stroller.
E had a snack at the Dolphin Show, and although I don’t think she could see the excitement in the tank very well, she loved charming all the audience members around her.
Inside the aquarium, she loved looking at the fish and following them around with her whole head! She also enjoyed seeing her own pretty self in the glass.
She quickly caught the attention of a few other visitors, and became our wee baby celebrity. I’m now wondering how many people have photos of her…weird. But it was done with kindness, and this particular family was delighted to have their baby meet our baby. Hey, we took advantage of the cute moment and snapped a photo too!
Daddy was glowing with his baby, sharing and showing little girl around:
Looking back on these photos, I’m excited for the memories we made, and the ones that await us when we are back together. It was a lovely trip to the aquarium, I’m so glad we experienced it together.
