Last Saturday we had a wonderful evening at the Aquarium of the Pacific Ocean Conservation Awards which honored Magellanic Penguin expert P. Dee Boersma, Ph.D. and the City of Long Beach. We had lovely conversation with humans and fun interaction with some of the aquarium residents. Here are some photos from the evening. Enjoy!
Grandpa Ron and I visited the Aquarium of the Pacific to get a change of scenery for getting my steps in for today. The Pacific Islander Festival was going full swing. We had a great time! Watched a few hula performances as well as the sea otters, seadragons, jellies, crabs and penguins!
All the hula dancers did great!!
All of the sea otters were very active this afternoon!
I love how graceful the Leafy Seadragons are!
My favorite jellies! West Coast Sea Nettles
He looks hungry!
The penguins swim really fast! It is hard to get a good still photo of them swimming by!
