On Sunday afternoon we drove to Long Beach with family to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was as much fun to observe Emma marvel at the diverse sea life as it was to study it. My favorite are the giant sea bass and those enigmatic eels. I could stare at them all day long. We watched a seal & sea lion show and geeked out on the adorable sea otters from our perfect viewing spot. I took videos of the weedy sea dragons and the sea horses that are so relaxing to watch as they float around in their watery world. It was a hot and crowded weekend day but once inside we were able to take it easy and the air conditioner made it feel quite pleasant. I was thankful that we made the trip.
