The Aquarium
Thursday, May 26, 2011

The boy and I headed down to Long Beach to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific. When he and I first started talking a year ago, the aquarium was something we wanted to visit, and I'm glad it finally happened! My favorite creatures were the Moon Jellies, they were so dreamy the way they floated around effortlessly.

After we looked at all the exhibits, we walked to the wonderful lighthouse in the distance. As a child, I REALLY wanted to be a lighthouse keeper. I told my grandma and she laughed so hard.

  • Love the dress with those sunnies! Your outings look like such fun. I often think it would be great to have some kids on hand as an excuse to go do this type of thing more often!

  • This makes me want to go to the Aquarium of the Pacific so much! I've lived in Southern California my entire life and have never been there. Your photos are the coolest, especially the adorable shots of the seal and turtle! The seal totally looks like a character in a Dr. Seuss book. Super cool vintage dress too...I just love a good red dress.

  • Oh wow, those moon jellies do look dreamy.

    Some lighthouses have been renovated so people can stay a night or two there (similar to booking a hotel room). Awesome. I'm so going to do that one day.

    Gah, estate sales! I meant to get a local paper today to see if there are any around here this weekend.

  • Oooh! These aquarium photos are so mesmerizing. The colors are really rich and bold. I've never been to a real live aquarium, I guess it's something I'll have to add to my list!
    What would be so wrong about being a lighthouse keeper? Prime view of the water, sitting around controlling stuff, changing a giant light bulb once in awhile. Sure it'd get lonely, but it would be worth it cause you're a lighthouse keeper!
