Our First 2012 Summer Field Trip

Welcome to Seymour Marine Discovery Center with PattyKakesKidz and their friends from Tanya's Learning Garden.  From discovering marine life, petting  sharks, lunching off a cliff and exploring Natural Bridges beach side.  We had so much fun with some of our favorite kids.  Come see for yourself.
The group stops for a pose just before we begin our exploring.
Before we set out, the kids all sit for a docent discussion.
Petting a shark in a tank is the highlight for these PattykakesKidz.

Off on their own to explore the museum.
Please touch says the sign and that is just what we did.  Look, it's sealife.
More sealife to touch (sea cucumbers, star fish, anemone and more.
I can reach the sea cucumber, with a little help from the docent.
That starfish is a bit rough.
Exploring with a microscope. 
Watching a tutorial of sea explorations.
Sea Puzzles.
Out of all the skins, the otter was the softest. 
Fishing for magnetic fish.
Listening to teacher Cassy explain about this whale skeleton.  
(she tested them afterwards and they remembered all the answers)
Holding hands together and we were only the length of the whale's tail.
The view over the sea cliff.
A baby whale tail skeleton.
Off to Natural Bridges, just a little run through the water.

Enjoying the warm sun and sand.
