Swimming with the sharks


(poetry diary 132) went to the Norwalk Aquarium yesterday, where, besides seeing real sharks, kids can design their own sharks and turtles etc and add them to a huge digital display on which they swim around. (Shot of my child’s below. Child loves sharks.)

Charles Martin has a good piece below on why children, even those who love sharks, almost never tap on the glass of their tanks….
