Road Travel With A Pet Fish

Okay so everybody’s on vacation in San Antonio including our little Betta fish.  Yes, you read it right.  We brought our pet with us in San Antonio.  Why? Because we were away for eight days.  Nobody was able to watch our little Lavlee (lovely-that’s what my darling daughter calls it.)  My cousin and her two girls just came back from the Philippines the day we left for San Antonio.  So she was still on a jet lag.  My other girl friend who lives close by went on a road trip with her family.  And my parents-in-law live 93 miles away from us and it would be very inconvenient for them if they will just come over to watch the fish.  So, we came to a decision to just bring it with us.  We put the fish in a big jar with half full conditioned water and hubby poked a few small holes on the lid.  We situated the jar with the fish in it in between our bags and luggage in the car so it won’t spill while we’re driving.

Oh how fun for the little fish.  It had a great adventure with us on our summer vacation.
