Enticing blue building, clear intriguing windows,
cream orange fish waiting to be observed like an inspector. The only
thing standing between me and the fingerprint scattered glass hiding
these fish is a gigantic line that holds all the excited people leading
out the building and into the parking lot.
That building is the Baltimore Aquarium. My whole soccer team, all
seventeen skilful players, were here to have a good time and take a
break from the biggest tournament we’d had all year.
Muscles pulsing, eyes bulging, we slowly walked closer and closer to the
aquarium. The line was slowly getting shorter, like a rabbit chewing on
a carrot very slowly.
When we finally got inside, the decorative lights and mirror reflective
fish in the shiny aqua water blasted us in the face like a cannonball, a
gigantic, explosive weapon. We all jumped back with joy. As we recovered
from the blow of excitement, we slowly walked into the first floor of
one of the biggest aquariums in the world.
Surprisingly, I found out that the first floor was a gigantic pond the
size of an ocean, containing copious fish mellifluously floating in the
shiny blue water that was the base of the aquarium. It was obvious that
we didn’t have a meagre amount of fish to observe. We then saw the
escalators, the moving stairs of enjoyment, which led all the way up to
the seventh floor. It seemed as if it took forever just to go up one
flight. We would stand there for what seemed like an hour just to go up
one flight As we were enjoying the fish floor by floor, my soccer team
pointed out things that I never would have seen or known. I loved it
when a teammate would delineate something that only people on our soccer
team would know. Eyes peeled, brain overloaded, we went up each floor
carefully. Amazingly, the aquarium slowly got bigger and bigger when it
focused not just on fish, but birds and other mammals. Then we slowly
went down the last set of escalators, like a skydiver parachuting form a
Being at the Baltimore Aquarium was one of the best experiences in my
life. Friends will always be there to make an event better that it would
have been without them being there, and they can even teach you new
things. It never would have been the same without my teammates being
there. It seems that the memory has just faded into my closet of best
memories like any other great one would do.
