Mermaids and Big Fish

Myrtle Beach has a cool aquarium that was not too far away from where we were staying and since Miss H loves big fish- we headed over there during our vacation. Plus, when we arrived, we learned they had mermaids too!

My only advice is to get in front of the mermaid tank early because it fills up fast. Luckily, Miss H got us seats right in front of the tank.

It was a fun show and we were all impressed by their swimming.

There were some other big fish and stingrays in the tank too.

We explored the whole aquarium and saw all sorts of sea life.

It was fun to explore and see all the cool fish, corals, jellyfish and even to look up through a tank.

Of course we have to do the tourist stuff

30 Aug

While sitting on the beach, getting sun, swimming and building sand castles is great fun- we always have to hit up the touristy things too.

First, we got a great view of the beach from the Myrtle Beach Skywheel and compared it to our other Skywheel ride. Now, Miss H wants to ride all the sky wheels!

We had perfect weather for this adventure.

After spinning around in the sky, we headed to miniature golf. She got a little coaching from Kerry.

Then, Miss H got two hole in ones!

Later in the week, Kerry found Aliigator Adventures and this was our next tourist stop. I was a little skeptical of big reptiles but I have to admit this place was pretty cool. When we first saw a big group of ‘teenage’ alligators basking in the sun, I thought they were fake 🙂

We got to see them being fed (see that huge one jumping up for chicken!).

And, Miss H enjoyed the reptile show and petting the baby.

There were all sorts of different reptiles in varying sizes and colors and overall the place was cool. We all learned a lot about alligators!
