Oregon Coast Aquarium

We visited the Oregon Coast Aquarium today. We stopped here last time we were here but decided it was too close to closing. We were here several years ago and they have expanded the place such then. 

We really enjoyed the day. I loved the tufted puffins and we had one little guy that just wanted to show off. He was so funny. We took a video of him but I think it is too long.

The new glass tunnels were added since the last time we were there. There three separate tunnels. The first tunnel was Orford Reef, The second tunnel was Halibut Flats and the the third one was Open Sea. 


Now we are going to head into the Passages of the Deep where there are three

We went back to the puffins because the Horned Puffins were sleeping when we went through.  They were awake now.
