Field Trip: Monterey Bay Aquarium

We recently went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and had a fabulous time! I like this aquarium because it focuses so much on California's unique sea life and helps you appreciate what's lurking under that cold, gray water.

We were especially fascinated with the seahorse exhibit. Who knew seahorses were such complicated creatures? You really have to click on that link- you don't want to miss out on glimpsing a leafy sea dragon now, do you?

Of course, we spent a significant part of the day playing in the interactive tide pool (you can poke sea cucumbers!), but our jaws literally dropped standing before the jellyfish. Elegant yet globular, random yet regular. I'd love to incorporate this inspiration into a garden design!
