Love these photos of the old Marineland I knew and loved. I will never forget that first visit in 1965 but it was my third visit in 1967 that was most memorable . . . I saw more new things! Marineland had just roofed the Top Deck and installed the SkyWorker over the circular oceanarium and had rescued two rare Risso's dolphins. My grandmother had to have me paged over the public address system to meet her at the front gate as it was time to leave. As I was walking forlornly toward the main entrance, I stumbled upon the newly-opened Amazon River Exhibit. Now, picture a kid who couldn't get his hands on enough books about dolphins looking at a tank of freshwater dolphins! Saturday, April 5, 2014|Report this
