Periwinkle and Raz heard the familiar WOOSH and Stinky tumbled out of the tunnel...right into RAZ'S paws. The two looked at each other, were kind of shocked and then started to laugh. Periwinkle joined in as she ran over to give Stinky a big hug!! After they all stopped laughing, Raz headed off to find a sun puddle for a nap leaving the two love bugs alone to plan their day. After some whisker kisses and paw pats, they were ready to start their day.
"That sure was a surprise" said Stinky. Periwinkle agreed and they started laughing again. When they quieted down, Stinky asked what they were doing.
"We're going to the Dinosaur Store" said Periwinkle. "There's a store where we can buy Dinosaurs? Aren't they extinct? How will we get them home? What size litter box do they need?" asked Stinky.
Periwinkle assured him there were no live dinosaurs and they would not be bringing any home. She explained that the store was also a museum. Stinky agreed that sounded better.
They hopped into the Teleportation Tunnel for a very short trip to Cocoa Beach. At first, Stinky wanted to head to the beach to play in the sand and try surfing again but Periwinkle said they only had time for their planned adventure.
As they entered, they both gasped at the giant dinosaur skeleton!
Periwinkle grabbed a brochure that explained the store as well as having a map.
They took a quick stop at the ancient China exhibit before the checked out the dinosaurs.
They couldn't wait to see the dinosaurs! First they saw the Parasauroloph. They both agreed that was very hard to pronounce!
Next they saw the Dodo. Giggles started again when they said Dodo.
"The dodo (Raphus cucullatus) is an extinct flightless bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius, which is east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. The dodo's closest genetic relative was the also-extinct Rodrigues solitaire. The two formed the subfamily Raphinae, a clade of extinct flightless birds that were a part of the family including pigeons and doves."
"Wow, you know a LOT about the Dodo" said Stinky. Periwinkle blushed and admitted that she used Mr. Google to find out about the Dodo.
Stinky ran off and Periwinkle had to laugh when she saw what he did. "Hey look Periwinkle, the Alligator wants to eat my head." Periwinkle thanked COD that nobody saw him and quickly rushed him to the next exhibit. She whispered "BOYCATS!" under her breath.
They both agreed that Da Tabbies of Trout Towne would want to avoid this display!
There were some very scary dinosaurs...
And some very strange ones...
They spent some time looking at the rock collections.
And the fossils...
Periwinkle heard the sound of the Teleportation Tunnel rumbling and realized that it was time for them to head back to her house. She promised Stinky that they would make a trip to the beach as soon as all the snowbirds and Spring break people left.
As they often do, the two decided to have a snack on the pool deck before Stinky had to leave.
After some cuddle time and a quick nap and visit with Perwinkle's fursibs, Stinky headed back into the Teleportation Tunnel to head home. As he stepped in he said, "Boy am I glad I don't have to travel with one of those dinosaurs" which made them both laugh. They blew kisses to each other and off he went to his house to tell his fursibs and parents about his fun day. Periwinkle smiled and sat in a sun puddle with her memories of the day.
