In 2010 we took a trip to California. We flew into San Diego on a Friday night in April. The plan was to drive up the coast to San Francisco and fly home from there on a redeye the following Saturday. One stop during this amazing vacation was at the Monteray Bay Aquarium. It is located on Cannery Row. Remember the John Steinbeck novel? The setting of the novel is in this area. Anyway, the aquarium is situated next to the Pacific Ocean where there is a raft of sea otters living. They are in an area with a kelp forest and will wrap themselves in the kelp. This keeps them anchored so they can rest and eat without drifting out to sea. Below is a photo of the sea otters off the deck they have outside the aquarium. The little black dots are the sea otters bobbing around.
Wanting to get a closer view of them we used the telescopes that are available on the deck. Below is my kid looking through to get a better view.
One more photo needs to be shared. A picture through that telescope. See the sea otters?
To see what other lenses have exposed head over to Sepia Saturday.
