I went down to Monterey this weekend, and at breakfast my sister & her kids notified me they were going to the Aquarium. I hadn’t been since the Jellyfish exhibit, so went along with them. She had a master plan- get there right when they open. She had bought memberships too- so you avoid the really long line to get in. The otter exhibit was new to me, and very fun, though a friend of mine, an ex-abolone fisherman, calls otters “raccoons of the sea.” I was with kids so they had to touch everything at their level. Above is the inside-a-wave hall, which I found to be possibly the best light ever for photos! After this- the wave when it’s streaming by. Neat.
