I must forewarn you all that there’s a good mayhap that a slew of pictures are to come with today’s post. So Monday was President’s Day, which was also a day off from work (yay!).. So Andrew and I took full advantage of it and had a Monday Funday adventure.
PS- I’m one of those people that’s already thinking about the next 3-day weekend and I’m sad to say that it’s not till May *insert crying face here*
Anyways, Andrew out of no where came up with the idea that we should go into the city and check out the
New England Aquarium
My instant reaction went a little something like; “YES, OKAY LETS GO!” The last time I went there was probably 2 years ago when I first moved out this way, Renee, Bethany and Shawn came up to visit. And Andrew hadn’t gone since he was younger.
Our walk through the Financial District
Getting to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market
Of course upon arriving, Andrew was hungry so off to Wagamama we went for some lunch
My first time getting real ramen and it was everything I imagined and more.
And then a few steps away was the aquarium down by the harbor
The first thing you get to see when entering 🙂
And a few of my favorite sightings throughout the aquarium
My favorite exhibit was the Octopus- this was new and I swear I could’ve sat there all day just watching it in fascination. I’ve never seen one up that close and personal, but my face was literally right up against the glass the entire time. It was so active and swimming right in front for everyone to see. It was so cool just watching it graze it’s tentacles along the glass- it was just sliding across so gracefully. I don’t think calling an octopus beautiful is a thing but it really was..
I sometimes can’t help but to think these fish or animals (at a zoo) know they’re being watched by us humans and just put on a show for us LOL I mean, does anyone else think that? Madagascar?!?!
There was also a “touching pool area” and I couldn’t help but to flashback to Finding Dory…
After our aquarium trip it was still nice outside so I showed Andrew me and Lauren’s favorite go-to spot near the harbor. It’s like this little dock that has the most gorgeous view.
Getting to it is so scary but so worth it.
This is when we were actually on the dock
We put our phone on a timer and tried to catch some pictures.
We finally came off the dock and went to the back of the aquarium….And could it be- did a stranger finally take good pictures for us? YES, YES SHE DID! Thank you random stranger! Idk if you guys remember my pet peeve rant but you can read it here
A day well spent. And my apologies for the cheesiness but I just love this guy so much ❤
