Aquarium of the Pacific

Not too far from our house, in Long Beach, there's a whole other world. Mommy and I love to lounge on the beach and stare into the ocean, but I never really knew what was in there. So mommy took me to the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific to show me what life is like under the water.

There are so many colorful fishes in the sea. Some of them are very big. Some of them are babies like me. They're silver and yellow and bright blue. I even found Nemo!

Some of them are a little scary looking. I saw sharks and sting rays swimming by. But mommy said they won't be mean to me if I'm not mean to them. That's good. I'm not a mean bear :)

I even got see the Sea Lions and Sea Otters swimming around.

The sea otters were very playful.

They seemed to like getting their picture taken. I made friends with one of them. He kept swimming up to me to say hi.

I think the prettiest animal was the jellyfish. They seemed really peaceful. But mommy says not to touch them, because they have stingers that hurt.

I may be a little biased, but I like the white ones the best. Hee hee ;)

 Mommy and I even decided to adopt a baby. I'm the daddy of a sting ray! I will visit him often. 

It was a fun adventure to see the world underneath the water I look at all the time as a little teddy beach bum. Now when I stare into the ocean, I'll remember my new friends.
