Is this Pinterest enough?

If you ever find yourself in Camden, NJ (which you probably won't), head on over to the "Adventure Aquarium". (They call it adventure aquarium because if they notified people that it's in Camden, they'd be closed down.) #sorrynotsorry

But let's be real for a second, this aquarium is definitely nice considering the area. I'd actually say it is the nicest aquarium if you're from New Jersey and not looking to travel too far.

They have tons of things to look at. From Seahorses & Jellyfish, to Sharks and Blue penguins! (Just a heads up on the penguins, they tend to be a little frisky with each other...don't ask.)

Don't let our smiles fool you. We were frightened.

One thing that I thought was neat and something I haven't experienced at other aquariums, was the Shark Bridge.

Not going to lie, walking on a netted bridge with sharks just casually swimming below you is...SO COOL.

What? Did you think I was actually going to admit that I was the slightest bit scared?

That shows weakness and I am NOT weak.

You must be wondering why I dedicated a blog post to my day at the aquarium.

Well I've always been the type of girl who was completely mesmerized by marine life.

Always so fascinated.

I didn't grow up on a tropical island where you can swim in crystal blue water with fish & dolphins. And I didn't grow up somewhere you could take a safari to see some of the most majestic animals.

So thats why I gravitate towards Zoo's and Aquariums.

That's where I can get my fix of some of the most beautiful things.

We humans are curious by nature and have an inherent desire to explore the unknown and discover environments foreign to our own.

This shark tunnel, although small, was so beautiful to me. And being able to capture the beauty of them even though its not the ocean, brings peace to me.

And I think no matter how old I get, I will always be a kid when it comes to trips to the aquarium.
