And aerial view of the Aquarium of the Pacific in 2000
Back at the turn of the century I took some aerial shots of the Aquarium of the Pacific. These images show the young facility in its original configuration.
Back in the year 2000, Tony, then an Aquarium aquarist and pilot, and I, took a flight over the Aquarium during the Long Beach Grand Prix. We were on our way to do an informal cetacean survey over the San Pedro Channel but took the opportunity to circle the Aquarium of the Pacific in a Cessna to get some aerial shots of the then two year old facility. Years later these images afford an opportunity to see what the Aquarium was like before Shark Lagoon, Lorikeet Forest, the restaurants of Rainbow Harbor and the Pike were built.
