The Aquarium in San Sebastian

One of the very best aquariums we've ever seen. There is a HUGE tank that surrounds you, so you can watch fish swim over, under and around you without ever getting wet. For me -- and you know how I feel about sharks -- the ability to see a shark swimming two inches from my face, knowing it couldn't see me or try to bite me, was exhilarating. I watched one breathe for several seconds, quiet, just hanging out above me. The kids loved it, but Raf and I were equally mesmerized. I had no idea that this place was here and am grateful that the weather was too cold for a beach day, otherwise we may have missed it!
