Seaside Aquarium

One of the few sunny days we've had lately, so we decided we needed to get out & do something!
We won free tickets to the Aquarium in a raffle the other day. The aquarium in Seaside is right on the beach, and I knew it would be small from the looks of the building.
We've been to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in CA, which is fabulous in every sense of the word & would encourage anyone to go there if possible. But I thoroughly enjoyed myself at this little one too.
The newest baby!
Meet Victor, who was a very old lobster. His life ended when he was dropped by someone trying to abscond with him. :(
Photo of sea urchins is blurry, but imagine a sea otter eating one of these. It's their favorite food!
These guys fascinate me.
Quillback Rockfish. Hubby had caught one on his fishing adventure. Delicious.
I'm not sure what kind of fish this is, but he seemed to want his picture taken.
These little girls looked fascinated & creeped out at the same time. So cute!
This little scene makes me think of a dead body draped over the rock & the other one running away!
Flounders just layin' around.
Wolf Eel. Loved this guy! It's almost a human face!


  1. I enjoyed that. It's a while since I took the children round the aquarium in Napier but I don't recall so many 'interesting' species. The Wolf Eel rather freaked me actually!

  2. Ooooooh, that baby seal!! I love aquariums; they're kind of spendy to get into, so you were lucky to get a free pass. The aquarium in Newport,OR, is very very good.
