Out Back Outside

7 comments

I’ve been so busy playing with my scanned negatives of late that I have not followed up on posting more photos – digital this time – from our trip to Monterey last month.  I finally took another look at some of them, and sorted them out.  Yesterday’s “On the Roof” was the first one.

Here, the back side of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  The tide comes in and out here, and as you can see, you can stand above to look at the shoals below.  Sea life, both plant and animal, can be observed here.  From where I took this picture, docents have spotting scopes and binoculars so you can look out into the bay.  There, seals and otters can be found on rocks or scooting around..

The Aquarium is one of those places that is always worth a visit.  Some people like Disneyland – me, I prefer places like this, just because I find the natural world more satisfying than an expensive and crowded playground.

    1. What you are looking at is the bit of beach where the waters of the Monterey Bay come and go with the tide. The blobby white stufff – if I get it – is rocks if it is more toward the back. Is that correct?

      Or, maybe Martians? Blobbians? Jovians? |-0
