I wrote about the Monterey Bay Aquarium before, when I posted about a weekend getaway to Monterey a while back. We try to visit once or twice each year, because the exhibits' animals change frequently, and the sites do not get old! A few weeks ago, we were able to pay a visit to some of our favorite sea animals, so I'm posting some photos of them here.
Like this otter--I could watch her and her friends all day.

Some Nemos and Doreys here:

But I always find myself back watching the otters. They look so relaxed!
Another batch of aquarium photos to come!
