I got to pet a shark. Oh, okay! It was less than two feet long and it was in the touch pool at the Oklahoma Aquarium but still… I got to pet a shark! Two actually. I don’t know the exact species. One was spotted and the other was cream-colored or off-white.
This was not our first visit to the OK Aquarium. It is nice and an interesting place but it’s very expensive and, in a way, a bit disappointing. I guess it’s that, for the high price of admission I expect a little more. And maybe that’s partly because I’ve been to a couple of larger aquariums. It only took about an hour to go through the whole thing. We could have spent longer, just standing around looking at the fish, which I would really like to have done, but we had the grandson with us and he was in a hurry to get to the next thing and the next thing. Also, when it’s crowded, as it usually is on the weekends, you feel sort of obligated to move on and let someone else have a look. And I guess being always crowded is a good argument that it is not too expensive but I still can’t help thinking, “Wow, that was really expensive for an hour’s entertainment!”
