A Visit To The Vancouver Aquarium

One of the nicest thing about living the Dot Com Lifestyle is you can have a family fun day whenever you want. As a rule, I never do family fun days on the weekends because that’s the time everyone else does family fun day. So, after lunch at Phnom Penh (which was posted on Twitter), we decided to check out the Vancouver Aquarium at Stanley park.

The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Science Centre is a self-supporting, non-profit association dedicated to effecting the conservation of aquatic life through display and interpretation, education, research, and direct action. The place has changed a lot since the last time I’ve been there. Sally loved it and that was the main reason for going. Sally liked it so much that we decided to buy an annual membership.

Given that we went on a Wednesday afternoon, the aquarium wasn’t all that busy – mostly out of town tourists and one family living the Dot Com Lifestyle. Gotta love it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      This place looks more like SeaWorld then a city aquarium. Fun times!

        Lol yeah it really does. Those jellyfish are pretty cool though.

        1. I love the big fish ๐Ÿ™‚

        2. Abdul says:

          Yeah, they don’t look real!

      2. Tyler Ingram says:

        It isn’t near the size of SeaWorld. And not nearly as cool as SeaWorld, but it is nice to go to on a meh day if you’re willing to pay $20 per person.

        Reminds me SeaWorld is $70 per person! or was for me when i went in February.

    2. yeh, star fish looks awesome.. Can’t image that its real ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Those squirrels are crazy. They attack people for peanuts now. When I was younger, they were much more tentative when I offered them a peanut. Now they chase you.

    1. We have albino squirrels and regular squirrels on the College Campus in my little town that will literally attack you.

      Bully squirrels!

    I love the aquarium!

      You won’t like the Vancouver one very much… or I didn’t.

      It’s tiny compared to SeaWorld in California or any other aquarium i’ve been to and there isn’t as much animals.

  4. Arfan says:

  5. Mike Huang says:

    I wonder if people realize your ML “I am blogging this” was not just a cool t-shirt but a reality. It got blogged.

    1. John Chow says:

      For a minute there, I thought you were going to say, “I wonder if people realize that you get paid to wear that T-Shirt?” ๐Ÿ˜›

      1. Do you get paid to wear that shirt? ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Kok Choon says:

        Can I have one? Very cool!

      3. Hey I will wear it for free. Send me one!!! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        Where do I sign?

        1. And – I’m willing to post 4 blog posts over a period of two months with pictures of me wearing it.

      4. How about a T shirt contest on your blog, its been awhile since I ve won any T shirt

        1. Sounds like a good idea! Would be fun!

  7. Daniel says:

    Cute! That is quality time!

  8. Rowell says:

    That was really cute with the ribbit ribbit! and a terrible massacre with the crickets. It’s great to see that you spend quality time with family. Fun time at the aquarium! I may make a visit to my local one soon.

  9. tat is some nice pic.. I’m gonna go there with my family next time

  10. Mario says:

    Nice pictures and very nice video John.

    I hope to enjoy your life every day because life is beautiful.


    1. Kok Choon says:

      Who don’t want John lifestyle? I think we all did!

  11. Scott says:

    I have never seen a black squirrel before

    1. This is not PC. You have to say pigmentally-challenged squirrels. ๐Ÿ™‚

    [quote]I never do family fun days on the weekends[/quote]
    Enjoy it as long as it lasts. There will be a time when the kids go to school and it becomes difficult to get them out for a day or two.

    1. Tony Chung says:

      The obvious answer is home schooling and/or private tutor. Kids today spend way more time in school than they need to. Most kids can get by with 2 hours of RRR and the rest of the time experiencing the world around them. Now if only I could convince my wife that that’s a great idea…!

  13. Loved the squirrel interaction!!

  14. Loved the frog massacre and Sally is so cute “rebub”, “rebub”!

    Enjoy it whilst it lasts, my daughter is 13 and can barely stand to be seen in public with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. whateverebay says:

    what a darling child! You are such proud daddy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Tyler Ingram says:

    Even though it is small (and I mention that above) it isn’t a horrible place to go. They do have 3 generation of Belugas (no that Tiqa was born) which is pretty neat and so is the story behind it.

    I have some photos from when I went on last Saturday at my flickr set: http://flickr.com/photos/tyleringram/sets/72157608626791156/


    1. Tony Chung says:

      My youngest got splashed by the belugas on his birthday a couple of years back. He still regards it as one of the most memorable days of his life.

  17. Jack says:

    they have black squirrels in Canada?!

  18. bob goh says:

    Thanks for sharing your aquarium visit. I really enjoyed it!

  19. Keral Patel says:

    Same strategy ๐Ÿ˜‰ Never having family holidays on weekends. It is quite calm on other days.

  20. Dfunda says:

    i have never visited such aquariums in my life ๐Ÿ™

  21. What a sweet child! You must be a proud daddy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Most of us are here at work while you are spending time with your family at the zoo. Yet we are here at your site to learn how to make money online, from a guy that essentially gets to hang out and have fun with his family all day, haha.

  23. Takumi86 says:

    I really wanted to go there ๐Ÿ™

  24. Greg says:

    Well… if you liked that… you would enjoy this place sooo much

  25. Ben Pei says:

    Such an envy.. a family outing beats anything..

  26. Diana Rupert says:

    I hope 1 day I could visit that place. I love the views.

  27. Chip says:

    Damn, never seen a black squirrel! Nice girl. Nice t-shirt! Should have said “Blog This!”.

    Hey, that’s a good idea for my next article! Hey, Blog This!

  28. ร–nder says:

    And dolphins are really great. I love this animals.

  29. Theresa111 says:

    I especially like the photograph of Sally and the squirrel. They compliment one another and seem relaxed in each others company.

  30. Mark Mayne says:
