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 moon jellyfish are one of my favorites
these actually looked like spaceships in outer space
they had many varieties most of which I don't remember the names of
this is one of my favorite shots of them. Its hard to get a really good shot with all the glass but this one made me happy
do you get the picture that they fascinate me?
then came the seahorses. so delicate so precious
my husbands personal favorite
and for a last shot on seahorses:
and of course there were sharks
weird and ugly fish
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
and this shot made me hungry
if you ever get to monterey GO to the aquarium there is so much more than this there and it really is a wonderful aquarium.
