Friday 5/31/13 News & Views: Turtles in Giant Tank, Plus Weekend Highlights

Neighborhood View of the Day:

The big sea turtles, including Myrtle, are back in the Giant Ocean Tank at the New England Aquarium. I stopped over last weekend and the news is apparently out because the place was packed. Fortunately, the sea turtles were nice enough to come over to pose for me and this photographer shown below. The new tank looks great!
