Ocean Discovery

Last week, one of my friends and I packed up our kids and headed to Sidney. We went to the Shaw Ocean Discovery Center, which is an amazing new facility with lots to offer. The kids looked through microscopes, saw the jellies, went in a "submarine", and spent plenty of time in the touch pool. It's a great way for them to explore the ocean food web, the displays are stunning and encourage questions and exploration. Next door is Mineral World, a place for the kids to do a little outdoor gold panning, search for semi-precious gemstones and gather some sea shells. It's a great day trip from Gabriola and gives a different view than we see at the beach.
