At Beachy Keen, getting the opportunity to enjoy clear skies, warm weather and a cool breeze is a day well-spent. We visited the Morro Bay Aquarium in Morro Bay, California, this past week and documented our discoveries and adventures. All pictures taken and edited by Avrah Baum. Enjoy!
Arriving in Morro never loses its novelty; your eye is immediately drawn to the giant rock on the horizon, before panning out view the peaceful boats bobbing on the water.
The walk to the aquarium offers so much to look and and do. Small, decorated store fronts and galleries offer crafts and novelties for the home and garden.
Upon entering the aquarium, a playful salt water hand-washing station is available for use, for none other than to feed the seals!
This little guy calls the Morro Bay Aquarium home. Large tanks house the seals, and visitors can interact with them via an open-top metal grid for viewing.
A tasty snack for a seal and a stinky handful for a human.
Inside the back part of aquarium, mysterious creatures become a reality behind thick glass panels. A leopard shark, some fish and a sea star come in close to say hello.
The bizarre horseshoe crab creeps along the floor of its tank.
Woah! You never know what you might see when visiting an aquarium. You sure don’t see that face every day.
Last but certainly not least, the elegant yet ominous sea anemone stands out with its pastel pink tentacles and translucent allure.
Goodbye, Morro Bay! The three historical smokestacks stand at attention, waiting for its loyal visitors’ inevitable return to the peaceful and picturesque town.
