    For those who saw the obviously pregnant seahorse... it must have been a male, since they are the ones who actually give birth. http://news.nationalgeographic.com.au/news/2002/06/0614_seahorse_recov.html

    Had a great time and enjoyed meeting and getting to know everyone. This is the kind of activity I'd probably never think to do on my own, but it was an awesome activity to do as part of a group (and I learned a lot too).

    I feel terrible for canceling my rsvp, but I've been having really bad back/neck/nerve pain all week and with that on top of the weather and possibly slick roads I think I'm going to cancel. :( I've had the opportunity to visit great aquariums before: the Shedd in Chicago, Monterey Bay and also Newport, Oregon. :) I know how cool aquariums are, so I hope everyone that does go has a fabulous time!
    My vacancy will open up another discount ticket for someone. :) Thanks, Rich, for all your time & energy organizing this event and all the others. I know first-hand the time & energy you put into all this, and I appreciate you! :)

  • Alice H.

    Anyone know how long the aquarium has been open?
    I think it one of KC's best kept secrets.

    January 27, 2014

  • Randy R.

    Can't wait, I have been thinking about seeing the aquarium since I heard about it a few months ago. note: one other option is you can buy a season pass for the aquarium for $50. Of course you probably don't know if you want a season pass till you've seen it.

      If you google "Crown Center waterfall" you can see what it looks like and exactly where it is ~ there are many links. :)

      1 · January 21, 2014

    • Rich R.

      Thanks River for comment. Carol it's very easy to find. Park inside crown center, when inside, hotel is on left. The waterfall is a huge jungle atrium. Tarzan looking thing. Ask anyone around if having any trouble finding. We will stay around till 11:15 till all arrive.

    Hey trippers. I got invited to tour sealife tomorrow because of our upcoming trip and subsequent overnighter. I'M EXCITED!!! Will update for both over weekend. I know we are all on budgets, and am trying to make these adventures available to all. Keep in mind car pools and room sharing IS OUR FRIEND. I travel alot and know the ropes. Stay tuned and we CAN do these things on the cheap.
