A Garden Under the Sea

When you visit the Aquarium, one of the first exhibits to catch your eye is Tropical Pacific Preview. This exhibit transports you to a shallow reef where brightly colored corals pop against a plain backdrop, while a royal blue tang fish weaves in and out of the water.

Milo Last Selfie of the Summer

Hugh's Aquarium Views Video Number 15

You see plenty of examples of animals photobombing people taking selfies so I thought I’d turn the tables on one particular animal.

Balloons and Breaching Blues! | Retired | Julien  buttonLink

Balloons and Breaching Blues!

Hi, whale fans! As I write this, I am thinking about all the amazing blog posts and photos and stories I have written about these last few years.
