Of course, you can't go to San Francisco without snapping some photos at the Golden Gate Bridge, especially if it's your first time. I like to snap a photo here whenever I'm in town just to keep track of the years I visit as they go by. A Golden Gate picture kind of feels like validation for just being there.. This time around, we got to check out the Aquarium of the Bay. It was smaller than usual but did have some neat creatures to admire. We got to watch an octopus squeeze itself into a tiny cylindrical vase in pursuit of dinner: crabs. It seemed impossible, but the flexibility of the octopus proved rather ridiculous. Oh, and Jelly fishes never seize to amuse me.
