(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!!!!!!!
