Long Island Aquarium

Long Island Aquarium
Riverhead, New York

These pictures have been hanging around on my desktop for a couple of months. In the very beginning of winter Erika’s Mom went on a cruise and Erika wanted to go on a boat too so we bundled her up and took her on the ferry to Long Island. Since we couldn’t do our usual plant hunting or wine tasting we decided on the Aquarium.

Feeding Time!

To say I was impressed would be an understatement. The facility had tons of interesting exhibits and is clean as a whistle. The place is small but jam packed with cool stuff. There seemed to be a large expansion project going on. Of all the environments to take pictures I find aquariums to be one of the hardest (like concerts). We really enjoyed our visit and would like to go back in the summer.
