Scuba Santa

Okee Dokee, Lee told me to grab my hat we were in for a cold walk.
Lee parked our car on the Ohio side of the river and we walked across the Purple People Bridge, dedicated exclusively to pedestrian traffic, to Newport Kentucky.
We came to the Newport Aquarium to see Scuba Santa!
After you enter you see these fish from where Sammy and Wally live in Africa.
They have fish from all over the world.
The aquarium showcases thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water,  a million gallons!
 The aquarium has 70 exhibits and 14 galleries, including five seamless acrylic tunnels totaling over 200 feet (61 m) in length.  These tunnels are the most fun because the fish swim under, over and around you. 
Look at the Seahorse, Lee loved watching them.
The Newport Aquarium's jellyfish gallery is the largest in the South.  It reminded Lee of Star Trek when they say beam me aboard because they swim in tubes  from floor to ceiling. 
They have Penguins, Rays, Mighty Mike the Alligator and much more.
But I came to see Scuba Santa swim with the sharks and a giant turtle.
Hi Scuba Santa, do you see me, I have been a good doggie!
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine.
