Our New Aquarium


In this photograph you can just see the living roof on top of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California. We visited over Memorial Day Weekend and had a fantastic time exploring what felt like the entire globe. If you have a a minute, here is a short clip of our experience.



There are tons of inspiring places over at Photo Friday today, I hope you head over there to take a peek!

How lucky are you! I love aquariums. My son was actually asking me to take him to one the other day, but there aren't any around. I told him when we get back to the states:)
Photo Friday - Dominical Beach - The True Surf Town and So Much More!

We went in the first weeks after it opened...talk about long lines! But so worth it. I especially love the living roof. You are lucky to live in such an amazing city. We enjoy visiting my husband's family a couple of times a year...always so many interesting and fun spots to visit.

A living roof?! What an amazing concept... but the practical part of me wonders how this would fair in an earthquake. (Depressing, right? And I'm an optimist by nature!)

I LOVED the video. What a great song to choose to go with it too! You have such a great knack for editing your movies. I enjoyed every moment of it :).

That place looks really popular with kids, no doubt! Great video...and I enjoyed the peek at the living roof in your photo.

The Academy is fun. Did you catch the 3D bug show and planetarium show? Those are the first things we grab when we get in because the passes disappear FAST!

Hi guys - thanks for the great comments. No, unfortunately the lines were too long for the planetarium or 3D shows...I figured it was all so great, that gives me a reason to go back again!
