Monterey Aquarium

while in Monterey for the big sur 21 miler we had time to go to the aquarium.  I haven't been there since i was a small child.  And loved it then and it didn't disappoint this trip either

 the big draw was the jellyfish and the seahorse exhibits.

they had all kinds of jellyfish like this neon jellyfish

the penguins were just not very social today and this was my favorite shot it made me feel sad for them.  on display for so long that must get frustrating.

this was cool to see.  I have never seen anything but dead sand dollars
