Something's Fishy

La Jolla is home to the famous Scripps Institute of Oceanography and the Birch Aquarium. We enjoyed another glorious San Diego treat today, and spent the afternoon at the aquarium. The pictures speak for themselves. I'm beginning to think that Dick is a natural photographer!

The Big Tank

Historic tuna fishermen - three rods for one tuna

A school of sardines in perpetual motion!

The fountain in front of the aquarium

After the aquarium we drove along the seashore and stopped at a sea lion beach to see what we could see. We saw three sea lions in the water, but none on the beach. It was wonderfull just to be able to see the sea!

So far this year, we have been from the Atlantic to the Pacific - from sea to shining sea :)
