When I was little, my dad used to take us to feed the ducks at this very park on Saturday mornings. We took them leftover pancakes. And once we bought them their own loaf of Wonder Bread.
Penguin swimming at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
We rode around the Long Beach harbor and saw this boat disappearing into the fog.
Today at the Aquarium of the Pacific, we saw things I’ve never seen in real life before.
We saw chambered nautiluses (or chambered nautili) swimming all over the place.
We saw a California king crab.
And we saw a giant isopod! I never imagined I’d get to see one of these alive. I’ve been fascinated by them ever since I first read about them — they’re huge and they look like sow bugs. It was amazing.
They were all in the Wonders of the Deep exhibit.
