Camden Aquarium (August 24)

Another day, another aquarium! The Camden Aquarium in New Jersey was on our list, and so on Wednesday morning we headed back to Philadelphia. We knew that Camden was nearby, but hadn’t realized it was literally right across the water from where we had recently visited the Liberty Bell!

One of the main attractions at the Camden Aquarium is the hippo-enclosure, which we visited at feeding time.

Cute little hippos!

While Daddy and Asher and Vivi watched the hippos from the below-water viewing area, Spencer wanted to get up high and see the hippos from above. We went into the upper stadium, and climbed the steps to a viewing platform, where Spencer could capture a more complete perspective of hippo-mania 🙂

After which we followed the signs towards the Shark Bridge (what’s a Shark Bridge?), stopping briefly at this prehistoric monster, where Daddy’s long arms came to good use!

So that’s a Shark Bridge! The rope suspension bridge above the shark tank was superfun…

So fun that we went twice, at my request!

Although it was not ideal for photographs…

…Spencer still managed to capture a great feel of the experience!

And so, we said goodbye to Philadelphia…We would be breaking camp in the morning, headed further north and east, coming to the final stage of our travel. Having said hello and goodbye to family and friends all along the way, we would be striking out into new territory, into unknown lands, heehee, just our little family, back on the road again!
