My favorite time on Saturday mornings during my weekly volunteer shift at the Aquarium of the Pacific is the hour just after the Aquarium opens and just before the majority of our guests arrive. Sea lions come to greet you as you walk through their underwater tunnel, lorikeets show their appreciation for keeping them company by chirping as they perch on your shoulder, and our wonderful seals and sea otters are enthusiastic participants during our first training session of the morning. I wore a “volunteer-cam” last Saturday morning in an attempt to share with you, the reader, a bit of the magic of that first hour of the day from my point-of-view (POV). I hope you enjoy the video below! Look for more POV videos in future blogs.

Thank you for the great movie. Thank you for taking care of those amazing animals. I’d be afraid to get my fingers that close to a sea otter.
I love you Miller!

How cute this video is! We are truly lucky at AoP to have these interactions with the animals. I’ve made the morning walk many times myself, and the experience of being there during the sweet quiet moments is beyond description. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Thanks for the kind comments on my video. It was a lot of fun to do and I’m planning more for future blogs.
