I love Jellyfish. And Penguins. And Sharks. And well… pretty much everything you can and do find at aquariums.
Generally, I go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium because its close to my hometown- we got there on field trips as kids. I visited my brother once when he lived in Baltimore and he used it as an excuse to go to their aquarium. And when I lived in Chicago- visiting friends gave me the same excuse. Heck, even last year visiting Kathleen in Seattle led to a visit to an aquarium! So… I think it’s clear that I like undersea things.
But I’ve lived in L.A. for a few years now and had never been to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. But that changed a few weeks ago when I was able to convince my friend Myria to spend her day off wandering the halls with me. Even convinced her to splurge a teeny bit and get the ticket that takes a trip out whale watching. For the record, we saw 3 blue whales. Amazing.
No silly video from this day but here’s a small gallery of photos.
