it’s never too late…

…to tap into your inner child!

so i’ve waited quite a while to visit some of the attractions in my own backyard.  i seem to vaguely recall a trip to the cabrillo beach aquarium at about the age of three or four.  what i remember most are the fantastic pair of little red pants with a repeated print of white sailboats and seagulls that i was dressed in that day! but i digress…

well, i got a call of the wild on saturday and nothing would do but to answer that call with an early morning inspirational trip to the aquarium of the pacific.  if you care about the oceans and global warming i would have to say it’s well worth venturing out (going early to avoid the sticky fingers and smeared glass) and i was blown away by the diversity of our waters.  my pics won’t do it justice but i am inspired by the beautiful colors and graceful textures.

fuchsia fish. who knew?

i have always been a sucker for sea dragons…

…and now, leafy sea dragons.
