Penguins at the Aquarium of the Pacific

June 12, 2012

Last Saturday we had a wonderful evening at the Aquarium of the Pacific Ocean Conservation Awards which honored Magellanic Penguin expert P. Dee Boersma, Ph.D. and the City of Long Beach. We had lovely conversation with humans and fun interaction with some of the aquarium residents. Here are some photos from the evening. Enjoy!

Aw! How cute!

They are as curious about us as we are of them!

Who Me? Whatcha lookin’ at?

Here is more info about the new penguin exhibit.

High Tide and Low Tide

June 12, 2012

We had a very high tide (7.1 ft) in Long Beach on June 3rd. This photo is only 7 minutes earlier than the max.

Only 7 minutes short of high tide the gangway is level with the quay.

The next morning shows low tide:

The next morning shows the gangway making a long stretch down to the water.

Pacific Islander Festival at Aquarium of the Pacific

June 3, 2012

Grandpa Ron and I visited the Aquarium of the Pacific to get a change of scenery for getting my steps in for today. The Pacific Islander Festival was going full swing. We had a great time! Watched a few hula performances as well as the sea otters, seadragons, jellies, crabs and penguins!

All the hula dancers did great!!

All of the sea otters were very active this afternoon!

I love how graceful the Leafy Seadragons are!

My favorite jellies! West Coast Sea Nettles

He looks hungry!


The penguins swim really fast! It is hard to get a good still photo of them swimming by!
