Our visit to the Mirage Secret Garden

Posted on Friday, October 10th, 2008 at 10:12 pm

Last weekend we took Ivy to the Mirage’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Ivy loved the dolphins, and now she is always pestering me to see the “fishies” (I took some videos). Anyway, it was pretty nice. There is a baby dolphin pool where the grandma dolphin, mom dolphin, and 2 baby dolphins hang out. Its very peaceful, though by the way they look at the visitors as they swim by makes me think they are bored. Its also a little creepy how they make eye contact. You can see how smart they are.

I thought a lot about Marcela that day because this was where we were going to send her to swim with the dolphins and be a dolphin trainer for a day. Sadly, she was already too sick to travel and so she never fulfilled her lifelong dream of working with dolphins.

After the dolphin habitat we walked around and saw lions, white and golden tigers, panthers and leopards. These cats are so HUGE, its scary. You really can’t get the full effect of how gigantic they are from watching Discovery channel. Especially the lions, with their full manes. We were warned to keep alert because they spray to mark territory and it can reach up to 20 feet away- ew!

Anyway, it was a lot of fun and Ivy loved it!
