#84: Aquarium Of The Pacific

Garden of Eels

Well it's the first day of December and we're gonna kick it off in the LBC. A couple of weeks ago Brad had a weekday off and we decided to take a trip down to the Aquarium Of The Pacific. Luckily, we had two friends who were off of work too, so we all headed down in one car for some r+r (rays and reef sharks).

The aquarium is deceptively large. We spent over two hours looking at the displays. My favorites were the shark lagoon where you can pet rays and small sharks, the sea lions, the giant sea slug, garden of eels, and the jelly fish.

There was also an outdoor section called the Lorikeet Bird Forest, which was thrilling.. Yes, I think that's the best word to describe it. The birds were so pretty to look at, and it was fascinating getting close to them. However, when one of the birds landed on Arthur's finger, it started to bite him (and it wouldn't stop!).

Arthur wasn't the only victim. As I stood at the exit to the forest, every little kid rushed out with a look of fear in his or her eyes. There was even one teary eyed boy sobbing that a bird flew into his eye. Yeah, birds are crazy.
