We had been wanting to take our grandson Nathan to an aquarium. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium may not have been the best choice, as it is more of a working marine rescue operation than aquarium. A big attraction at the aquarium is Winter, the wild bottlenose dolphin rescued in 20006 by the center and featured in the movie Dolphin Tale in 2011.
One last item here. Returning to our car I noticed a hawk on the ground tussling with some critter he had just caught. A man standing nearby informed me that the hawk had just pounced on a snake and had to subdue it before swallowing it. He commented to us that he frequently walks the trail and usually is fortunate to see a lot of wildlife around him. Hopefully we can get out on the trail again at some later time.
