Mallory’s 4th Grade Field Trip

Yesterday I was able to go with Mallory’s 4th grade class for the day on their field trip to Charleston.  It really was such fun.  Lindee went, and Jackson’s mom Emma, but we drove down in Lindee’s car – only teachers on the bus.  We spent the morning at the South Carolina State Aquarium – I’d never been before, and we are definitely going to have to go back to spend more time there.  The ocean fish tank was two stories tall, and was just really something.  We watched the Dive Show, and I think it said it was the deepest in the eastern United States.  Very cool.

Another big hit was the albino alligator.  He was way back in his enclosure, so I couldn’t get a great picture, but it did remind Lindee & me of the one we saw at the zoo we visited in New Orleans.  The kids were very excited about this guy.100_7082+(2)

Sack lunches on the grounds at the aquarium. and then we headed over to Patriot’s Point, where we boarded a ferry for the half hour ride out to Fort Sumter – another place I’d never been. Here are Mallory and some of her friends enjoying the ride.  Good, good times, for sure…100_7097
