Fish story

Today, we went to Monterey Bay Aquarium to see the fishies.

Leafy Sea Dragon

Blubbery Jellies. I didn't know jellyfish even came in brown!

Sea Nettles

Sardines, swimming in the round. This is one of my favorite spots in the aquarium. In the whole world, really. I can just stand in the center and watch them swim around forever. I find it captivating.

Sadly, the sea otter exhibit is under renovation until March, although we did get a look at some furry little heads swimming around in the kelp beds, plus I also saw a sea lion. They were pretty far away, but aquarium staff were handing out binoculars on the outside deck, so instead of just squinting and asking ourselves if that was really an otter or just our imagination, we could tell that they were actual real sea otters, swimming around on their backs and diving underwater. Still, it's not the same as seeing them right there, up close and personal. Guess we'll have to go back sometime, oh dear.
