42: We then walked across the street to spend some time on the beach, it is summer in Florida after all!!
44: We also went to Tarpon Springs and had fun playing in the shops and checking out the aquarium. It was pretty cool for being such a small aquarium, they even had sharks! | They also had a touch tank with sting rays, Ryan & Faithlynn were afraid to touch them, mom/Aunt Collette along with Ashley fed most of them, I don't think we ever got Faithlynn to touch one! They also had a tank with baby sharks you could feed! But not touch! It was crazy feeding sharks!
