Surprise! A Side-Trip

Beautiful sunshine beaming down on Lisbon in the morning, what a wonderful sight!
We left the city gates and decided to walk the waterfront... for hours and hours and hours...



...fishermen along the boardwalk and bicycle trails...


...very sensible wine kiosks set up for the weary travellers...


...great sculptural works depicting the travels of Giovonni Caboto to the New World...


...500-yr-old bastions of safety and architecture...


... naval museum... and then in the complete opposite direction, figuring out buses and road signs, and reading in-between-the-signs-becausee-there-weren't-any-that-we-could-see, we found the Oceanarium!!


Look! Skates and rays!


And flat fish!!


And the world-famous Codfish!!


And sunfish! And sharks! And more!!


Sea dragons!


Sea anemones!


And Cool Cats!


Annnnd... I had to travel all the way to Portugal for the Puffin shot!


Mantas...


... and, of course, penguins.
Great Surprise! Side-Trip!
