Tentacles!


We  went to see the new Tentacles exhibit at Monterey Bay Aquarium!




Antique octopus art.


A coconut octopus, seeking protection in a jar.


Nautiluses.  Nautili? I never really thought about how they move or that they move at all.


There were a couple of giant Pacific octopuses, and we joked that they took shifts.  One would be suckered up against the window, resting.  The other gave us a great show, swimming and waving his tentacles.


Cuddle-fish!  SwingDaddy says they are cuttlefish, but I insist that cuddle-fish is much cuter.


I was well behaved and didn't bring anything home from the gift store.


We stopped to see the Jellies exhibit as well.




The play area featured sea-life costumes.


And plush moray eels.  When the kids tug on the "eels," they pull out to show how long they get.


Boys in shells.
A fun day for all!

Your expression pointing to the Tentacles Gift Shop is so cute.
