New York Aquarium!

I'm quite the homebody in the winter. i hibernate my life away, only showing up to work and an occasional night out with good drinks and better friends. but no matter the climate or season, i'll always be down to check out an exhibition. being the overly curious and easily entertained girly girl that i am.

this past tuesday, i paid a visit to the ny aquarium in coney island. i have never been to this aquarium, and or ANY aquarium in well over 8 years!! so you bet i was hella psyched....!!!! i didn't think the aquarium would be open in mid winter, but come to find out not only are they open all hours of the morning to the afternoon, but it was also pleasantly desolate. now, i don't HATE people of anything, but it sure is lovely to view each showcase without the need of a wait, or a blocked view. spacious, calm, and abundantly beautifully filled with gorgeous marine life. i brought along my baby and took tons of pics. sigh, falling more and more in love with every stuning aquatic wonder i came across...
