I think your photos are quite wonderful, Simona. Clay and I have got to get down to Monterey soon. I'm ashamed to say that we've never been to this wonderful aquarium.

Simona Carini

Thanks, Christine. I hope you and Mr CC get to visit it soon. It is a special place (a bit crowded on the weekend, as you can imagine). One year we also participated in one of the whale-watching trips they organize.


Thanks for sharing these photos. I love visiting acquariums and this one must be very special. Have a wonderful weekend.


Our whole family loves to visit aquariums (our favorite one is in Mooloolaba in Queensland) and my favorite creature is definitely the seahorse. I agree with you that the leafy sea dragon is spectacular!

Best wishes for a lovely weekend,


Simona, I used to live near Palo Alto so I used to take the kids to the aquarium often. I love it, I can never get tired of it. I also love the amazing job they do protecting the sea otters habitat and their rehabilitation program. Your photos are great, can't wait to see more!


What a fun place. I like to say the word, "ippocampo." I will say it all day today. .-)

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Ivy. Same to you.

Thanks for visiting, Natasha. Same to you.

Ciao Laura. It's an amazing organization. We also never get tired of visiting the Aquarium.

It is indeed a lovely word, Paz: it's of Greek origin. I also like it a lot.


I went to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium once, years ago, and just loved it. What a wonderful place. I remember watching the otters (or was it sea lions? both?) on the rocks outside, as well, on a beautiful, sunny day.

I second Christine's comment that your photos are great! Thanks for the look and the trip down memory lane.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Lisa. I am glad you enjoyed the post.


Wonderful post! I want to go! Love the sea and marine life. What a special place. Thanks for sharing, Simona. Congrats on your new camera. Your photos are better than you think. : )

Simona Carini

Thanks Susan. I am glad you like the photos. The aquarium is truly a special place, located in a very nice spot on the California coast.
