One Year Anni

For our one year wedding anniversary we stayed at the Marriot hotel in the city. The night before our one year. We had a lovely dinner that night.

Our room. I don't know what that white circle on my jeans is. Camera fail. 

We had room service bring us dessert. My yummy pavlova. 

The next day. This is the view from our room. You can see the Brisbane river which flooded. It's a horrible colour at the moment. 

On the day of our anniversary we went to the Sunshine Coast to go to Underwater World, an aquarium. 

A type of shark which may have existed. 

Jason playing around (not sure why his eyes look like that)

I was completely fascinated by these baby sharks. They live on that sac. I guess it works like an umbilical cord. They have various baby sharks in different stages of development and it was so interesting to see.

Pretty, pretty sea horses. 

This was in the Oceanarium tunnel. It's another world under here. 

It was so weird to have these guys swimming over the top of your head. 

One of the beautiful seals, in their viewing room. 

This is a frozen Hammer head shark. It's the largest frozen one in the world. This guy is huge and creepy to look at up close. It's a bad photo but I had to show this fella. 

Bubble head. There was this section where you crawl under and put your head in this bubble. It was crazy to see the fish swimming around you. 

Afterwards we went down to one of the beaches to have a walk. It was such a gorgeous day.

We had a fantastic day and I'm glad we were able to spend it doing something educational but still fun. We also watched a seal show and I was thinking of getting a photo of a seal kissing my cheek. 

It's my birthday next Tuesday (1st), which I will probably spend alone during the day :( but this weekend I would love to go to Thunderbird Park and mine thundereggs :) This year I want to explore my city and state more. 

Anyway, have a wonderful and beautiful weekend!

What a wonderful way to celebrate your anniversary! It is just our sort of thing too but we haven't got any really good aquariums close to us sadly.

I adore your bubble shot - those are so fun.
