Today we took a drive down to Monterey and visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium, good tip Moss, and had a look around there. There are some pretty neat displays covering everything from jellyfish a couple of whom are surrounding these first paragraphs up to the top predators such as sharks and tuna.
The driving force behind the aquarium is the desire to instill folks with a sustainable attitude towards our oceans. In our case it worked, a little anyway, as after we got done there we headed down the street to the Fish Hopper, shown below, for some seafood for lunch. But they only serve seafood that complies with the Aquariums Sustainable Seafood Guide for the West Coast. Who knew being environmentally friendly could taste so good. Brenda had the Mushroom and Crab Cake sandwich and I opted for the Seafood Linguini. Both were outstanding and did I mention sustainable!!
Got some news from home, that Caron, my niece, had her appendix out yesterday. She's a little sore but will be back good as new soon. Good timing as I think on Tuesday her and my Dad were off to Churchill, Manitoba to see the polar bears. If it had happened up there they may have had to remove it with a couple of sharp spoons but the freezing would have come naturally.
