Sharjah Aquarium – Echoes of my neighbourhood

Watching sea life is so satisfying and has a way of relaxing my nerves and calming my mind. As a matter of fact, I am persuaded in my mind to get a small aquarium – hoping the poor fishy will thrive if I do so.

I always try to sneak in a detox outing/walkabout for myself sometime during the busy week. I simply shut down everything and just go to unwind.

My walkabout took me to Sharjah’s Aquarium and marine museum – will share the museum photos later. Emirate of Sharjah is one of the 7 emirates that form the UAE and on a good day without traffic, it’s just forty minutes drive from home.

Lady Lee sends us postcard pretty weekly smiles and sinful online platters to indulge in 🙂

If you would like to participate, the challenge is quite simple and you can find out more about it through this link.

  1. Hi Jacqueline! I feel the same way about sea creatures and tried the aquarium. I killed may fishies I’m sad to say…I would love having a big aquarium nearby to visit. I am about three or four days from an aquarium (that I know of) so, on the special days when you are able to travel forty minutes to visit the fishes enjoy them for me too. Love you!

    1. I just feel as if you handed me a treat reading your comments. It’s so good to have you. It’s just wonderful watching the fishes and the quiet flow of the water. Almost hypnotic. My fear of getting a little aqua life is just that they might die. That wouldn’t be funny.

      1. No it’s sad…I killed Sam Big-Eyes Witzemann and my nine and six year old sons at the time, had a very solemn ceremony in the back yard…that was the end of my attempt at an aquarium.:0( It’s good to be back. God Willing, I’ll stick around for awhile.:0)

  2. What a wonderful place …. I simply adore that little seahorse (they are called Hippocampe in French which is one of my favourite words) … do think about getting an aquarium – i had one for many years and i found it the most relaxing of hobbies (though I never came to terms with fishing out the dead ones when they got to the end of their marine life – they were so colourful in life and so white and plaid in death it upset me terribly.

  3. The beauty of this aquarium is undeniable. I remember seeing the tunnel where the fish are on all sides somewhere recently. Of course, I thought if I ever got the chance to go there I’d need an oxygen tank just in case the glass broke. It’s such an amazing marvel. Great photos.

  4. There are so many great places to explore in Sharjah. If you are into Art, a must visit is the Sharjah Art Foundation, 1971 design space (they’ve got a walk/running path with a spectacular view of the water) and a cosy little restaurant. There is also an art gallery upstairs called Maraya. Do pay them a visit, you’ll have more to love about Sharjah (:
