Penguin summer: Mystic Aquarium
After the Bavarian bonanza in the summer of 2009, the penguins kept rolling in thanks to fantastic camper trip I took with my niece Nikki and her two kids, Cory and Hayley. Our first stop was the Mystic Seaport Museum and Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut. The aquarium even had a small penguin exhibit. We found this nice ornament in the gift shop.
