Today I went to the Seattle Aquarium with Kate and Elena. It was kind of fun to be tourists, checking out interesting marine life. I think that everyone's favorites were the octopus and the sea dragons. We also learned about salmon farming -- how the salmon return to the aquarium each year to be bonked on the head so that their eggs can be removed to create the next generation -- and watched some mammals (otters and seals) fighting and swimming (respectively) in their habitats.

After a few hours of fish gazing, we had a quick picnic on the dock. Elena ate fish, and I had an ice cream sundae in a waffle cone for lunch. Now I guess I'll try to be a good student and study for my exam next week.


josh, you've outdone yourself with a masterful portrayal of the "massive grinding molars" in the big mouth of the wolf-eel at the Seattle Aquarium.

Your substitute photographer has elegantly captured quite the artistic masterpiece.
Thanks! That was exactly my motivation for that pose!

Unfortunately, the Seattle Aquarium doesn't have a Moray Eel. That is a truly sinister looking creature that I remember from many visits to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago.
