The Floating Lab

San Diego, California
Tuesday, March 18th



















The boat. It was a 4 hour tour!! ;-)


















A sting ray, minus the stinger!






















Lunch! Yum.




















A sea star not to EVER be called a star fish. K?



















Our group of older kids. The lady in charge did a great job with the 3rd graders but also geared this time to the older kids. Ew. Do you have any idea what is in one drop of sea water. I may never swim in the ocean again. Oh, that's right, I don't swim in the ocean. I just sit and watch and tan.























Ashley put her arm gently around Sarah's waist as the boat sped up. Isn't that a precious picture?



















The (almost) 16 year old fashionista's!

The kids actually caught all of the critters. They threw a net into the bay, let it sink to the bottem and then we all participated in pulling it up. It was very fun to see what was in that net!

Our guide, Adrienne, was fantastic. She had a great sense of humor and taught the kids well.

As you can see, the weather was perfect.

















These guys just crack me up!!

Great Post!! I would love to take my boys on something like that.

We learned years ago, in Seattle, that they are Sea Stars, and they have more than 5 points sometimes too.

You got some great pics!
