Today my family went to Mystic Aquarium. My mom and I did the penguin encounter with Josh and PurpleGray (a two-year-old female penguin). She was born at the Aquarium. It was very fun. We got a close view of a penguin and we did things we haven't done before - like listen to the penguin's lungs. We learned about a devastating oil spill in the early 2000's. Thanks to the work of volunteers, 95% of the penguins were saved. Here are a few pictures from my trip.
