Clearwater Marina

We stopped in at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This isn't your typical aquarium.  Their focus is on education, rescue, rehabilitation, and release of marine animals.  We got to see sea turtles, otters, pelicans, sting rays, and dolphins!  This is also home to Hope and Winter from the movie Dolphin Tale.

At first Avalyn was scared of the sting ray, but then she got brave enough to touch it.  We got to feed the sting rays as well.
