Screensavers from Monterey

Filed under: cali — SiKing @ 12:00 pm

We took a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on the weekend, just to get away from it all. The $65 admission was totally worth it! If you don’t hurry too much, it’s a great way for you and the kids to spend like 5 hours. I used my mobile phone to take some video. It looks like some mocked up screensaver or sumtin’, but all this were real flesh-and-blood creatures. 🙂

This first one were some jellyfish suspended upside down. As it was my first one I used the night-mode (it was dark everywhere), and hence the video is rather jaggy (is that even a word?).

Here are the same jellyfish, but this time I tried it with nigh-mode off.

Some more jellyfish; babi really liked these ones.

This is my favorite fish screensaver. I even tried some funny anti-trick photography. 😛

Here are some Sea Dragons – like really, that is what they are called. We thought Ray would have loved these!

And I have to include this. On the way there an back, there is a beach right next to the aquarium that is fenced off so that people cannot get in. As such it is also a favorite resting spot of … can you see them?

seals or rocks?
