Highway 1 Journey ~Monterey~

It was raining in Carmel so we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The entrance fee was expensive, but oh my goodness, it was worth it! Although it was packed with screaming children and their stressed out parents I was so glad that I went there. There was a whole another world of the sea.


Can you see this leafy yellow thing? Guess what? This is a Leafy Dragon Seahorse! I would have thought that it is just another sea weed... what a disguise. Good job!


There were tiny jellyfish everywhere, and they were just so cute! 小さなクラゲがあちこちにいました。その可愛いこと!

They are red spider lilies of the sea?  まるで海の彼岸花のよう? 

And those big bloody red mushrooms!  そしてこの血の色をしたキノコ!

These were my favorites after all... because they reminded me of ebi sushi (shrimp sushi), and they were just too strange to look at... We realized that we were there for hours. I was totally exhausted and overwhelmed by those beauty of the sea. Needless to say that I did not feel like eating any sea food that night!
