Seattle Aquarium

So, remember how I went on and on about the Pike Place Market?? Well, I might love the aquarium just a little bit more. Why? Cause they have animals, and I’m a sucker for animals.

(Actually, Pike Place market has it’s fair share of animals, too. Though, those are mostly dead and available for eating. Which may argue that Pike Place is the better place to hang out. But I digress..)

We spent out Monday in Seattle hanging out at the market and wandering by the seashore. And after seeing so many tasty, tasty fishes, I decided that it was time to go and see some of the live variety. Hugparty was kind enough to accompany us and put up with my squeeing over the corals. (Actually, she did some squeeing too, truth be told. Corals are pretty awesome.)

We were there nearly until closing time, and really should have come earlier and made an entire day of it. As it was, we could have killed a couple of hours just watching the river otters play in their enclosure, to say nothing of the very inquisitive fur seal who I got into a staring contest with. All in all, it was an awesome way to spend a day.

Also – OMG AUKS!!!!!!!

    …I THINK I know what Auks is. We don’t have them (wild) but Norway does. Small-ish birds, colorful beaks, almost-penguins (that can fly, but not very good)?

    …Didn’t Julie have a pet auk towards the end of “Julie of the Wolves,” but he died shortly before she stumbled across the village where her not-dead-really father was living? That or a puffin, but I’m pretty sure it was an auk. It’s been a while since I read any JCG.

    Ok googling around, it seems that I was thinking of Puffins, but that they are the same family; like different kinds of gulls. So ok, I was not far off.

    You should totally come to Vancouver B.C. if you liked the Seattle Acquarium. The one in Vancouver’s a good two times as awesome, the exhibits are all much bigger 😀

  7. Maybe we should keep you away from the Scripps Aquarium when you come down to SD. They have a strict “No Squeeing” policy, I think.
