#22 I Made My Wife A Pensieve From Harry Potter For Her Wedding Gift


I glued a magnet to the tip of the wand. Each of the bottles also has a magnet glued inside the bottom. Again, the bottle sticks to the wand due to the aforementioned magnets. To anyone who thinks this may sound callous, getting attacked is kind of the point of Stingray City.  When you get in the water, they give you a piece of squid to hold onto.  This attracts the rays so they swarm you. It's in Grand Cayman and super fun.
