This week, I met a flamingo. She looked right into my eyes and moved closer to me. We were inches apart. The meeting was close to magical, and I didn’t want to continue on into the rest of the Caribbean portion of the aquarium, but I have kids. Kids who run, jump and twirl. I have to follow them.
While the aquarium itself is a place of learning, my daughter discovered flamingos on ABC Mouse. They have a zoo section of the website. She learned; I learned. For instance, did you know flamingos mate for life? They can fly, and they know how to stare directly into your soul…OK, that last fact I made up, but its true, nonetheless.
Long story short, I now love flamingos, and we went to the aquarium with some friends this week.
