Aquarium of the Pacific

Aquarium of the Pacific

This Memorial Day Weekend was extra special, not just because it was my first three-day weekend with the startup, but because it was my wife-elect’s birthday! Her adventure of choice: The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA.

After surprising her with birthday cake, treats, and a present, we were on our way to explore marine life. It was a gorgeous sunny day in Los Angeles with clear skies and (for once) barely any traffic. To our delight, we were at the harbor within an hour!

We also decided to take the Nikon DSLR I gave her for Christmas last year, and we couldn’t be any happier with the results! It allowed us to take some incredible shots! But it also taught us just how difficult it is to be an animal photographer: very.

By the end of the day we were exhausted, but beyond thankful for the opportunity to sea so many amazing creatures up close. We even got to pet a stingray! Yeah, pet. If you are ever in town, we highly recommend the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Tell me, have you ever been to an aquarium? What is your favorite sea creature and why? Would you like to pet a fish, or do you prefer to observe from behind a glass?
