Oregon Coast Day Three: Oregon Coast Aquarium

If you thought today was already full, we had been seeing the billboards for the Sea Punk exhibit since the drive into town and what can I say, they got us.



We got there JUST in time for Sea Otter feeding!

It took a while to get started, but these guys were so active, we were all very entertained.

It was a very cute little presentation, we even learned something new, like that Sea Otters have pockets in their armpits!



Mirah was SO excited to see the seals. We had the most incredible interaction with this adorable harbor seal!

There were exhibits created by tons of artists.





We made it to the sea tunnels. This place was HUGE! They had so many different tunnels, representing different areas of the ocean with tons of different types of sea creatures.
