{August 19, 2017}   Here fishy, fishy, fishy

A night at the aquarium, just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

Tonight, I went to my first work event. What I mean by first work event is for the Chicago office, not a local project team event.

I met DLP at The Shedd Aquarium near Soldier Field. A few other coworkers from my project were there. I also saw people I had been on projects with before and met some new folks.

It was a nice social event, the aquarium was closed to the public, there was food and drink and we were allowed to wander through the aquarium looking at all the wonderful exhibits. The best part… no little people, this time, so it wasn’t crowded and you could actually get close to the tanks.

We started with the amphibians and sea horses. I think a few of them were ready to give birth!

The jellyfish are amazing, so graceful, brilliant and deadly. In the Caribbean reef we were treated to a diver feeding the inhabitants. There was a very persistent stingray who wouldn’t leave the diver’s side, so cute. They really do glide and look like they’re smiling when they swim by.

We got to pet sturgens, admire the baby crocs, talk to the different species of turtles, play find the fishes. Since it was evening, the lights in the exhibit rooms were very low as were the lights in some of the tanks, have to mimic their home environment.

As they closed the exhibits, they told us the inhabitants were going to sleep and we should do the same, that was our cue to leave.

What a fun evening, looking forward to whatever comes next!
