In Charleston

Today, we docked early to spend some time investigating Charleston. I started out with a snorkeling adventure.

Okay. The truth is that we went to the South Carolina Aquarium. It is a lovely aquarium with some really great fish tanks. Many of the exhibits were focused on sea conservation. They do have a sea turtle rescue lab here. The special exhibit was on life in Madagascar. It was a small exhibit, but very nicely arranged. And, it had two lemurs! 

The aquarium also works on wildlife rescue. They had a good number of shore birds. One was our favorite, the Great Blue Heron.

And, just for Susan, they had a pelican that liked to pose.

Both were obviously rescue birds. They even had an eagle with a damaged wing. It was nice to see that they all had a great retirement home.
