Seems to be my specialty to take hundreds of pictures when I go somewhere, and then proceed to forget all about them for the next six months or so... So here are a few of my favorite pictures from my last trip to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA (Nov. '08).
A patchwork of sea urchins, starfish and other pretty creatures.
One of the sea lions. Sad to see them in captivity, but at least they are very well taken care of.
