Today, we visited the Maui Ocean Center. Lots of pretty tropical fish and other displays of the sea's beauty and majesty.
This angel fish had the longest upper fin thingy. I was surprised the image actually turned out considering the lighting conditions (inside a darkened aquarium, no flash).
Baby sea turtles!!! These were about one year old. Apparently, they do not reach sexual maturity til they are 25 years old! Crazy! I just love sea turtles. I took a ton of photos of them because I needed some reference images for when I start painting sea turtles on my pottery again.
Ok, onto my Aunty's woofie and kitty. Above you see Patches. He's very very friendly and loves to give kisses. Pity I am not that fond of woofie kisses. But, he's a sweetie and very energetic as you can see. It was kind of hard to get a good picture of him that was clear and in focus.
And this is Mika. She's a doll. Not very keen on strangers in great quantity or of Patches' barking, but she is ok one on one. I got her purring a couple of times when it was just the two of us.
She did a little bit of posing for me. Something about her face makes her look grumpy, but I think she can be quite sweet too as she did purr for me and let me pick her up a couple of times.
Next stop, Honolulu!
