Seacoast Science Center

Yesterday our family had the privilege to visit the Seacoast Science Center in Rye, New Hampshire. It was located right on the ocean with a beautiful view of the Isle of Shoals.
The children enjoyed the exhibits were they could touch a small shark (not sure the name),
sea cucumber, horseshoe crab, star fish, sea anemone,  and sea urchin.
We also learned a lot about sharks and dolphins, such as how they catch fish and krill, and how the make "clicking" noises to find fish.
One of my favorites was seeing a Blue Lobster, which is very rare 1 in 2-5 million are blue!
After we were done in the museum we went outside to enjoy the rocky beach.
It was a cloudy day but the sea breeze was so wonderful!
The ocean is my favorite place to be!!

Abby thought this Lobster was sooo neat!

Lion Fish

I know this is a little is a blurry, but it was too cute not to post

They had a treasure hunt to find different animals in the center,
 and if you got each one than you got a sticker, which the children thought was great.

Here is my Blue Lobster
