Decorated for Christmas and not that cold the day we went…

Bobby, Doug and I took advantage of the great props to take a few photos…

As we entered the colorful displays just grab you…

Your eyes dart from one to another… not wanting to miss anything…

Right before you EXIT or go to the Gift Shop you come upon the Penguin Exhibit…

This one seems to think he is quite the Looker!…

they swim in a large tank… hopping in and out onto the snow-covered rock background…

We cross over the netting pathway over the Shark Tank

which are swimming under us…

We EXIT to blue sky and cool temperatures…

and ready for lunch
