My husband and I happened to have free tickets to the New York Aquarium and we decided that we were finally going to go. It’s been a pretty chilly spring/summer so we haven’t had a chance to go (except our tickets expire at the end of the month). Of course we picked today and as it turned out, today had rain in the forecast. The minute we stepped outside, we got caught in it. By the time we got to the aquarium, everyone was trying to get in and take shelter from the rain. In face, there was a massive line just to buy tickets because they were over capacity.
That could have been then end of it but we thought, Eh, no problem! We knew the forecast, so we were some of the few people dressed appropriately and armed with umbrellas. We took a nice walk along the boardwalk and by the time we got back, we were able to avoid the line and breeze right in.
Despite the weather, everything turned out lovely. Check out the photos above and if you’re in the neighborhood, I highly recommend it!
