Jellyfish and Sea Dragons

It was Free Day today at the Shedd Aquarium — that meant that all eight of us could see all the best exhibits for only $140. Sometimes the word “free” can be a little misleading… It was so worth it! Mother Goose is a little wiped out after a day at the aquarium, so how about we just let the pictures mostly speak for themselves. Bee blessed!

These are real. Seriously.

Jessi is thinking of how she might be able to train the jellyfish.

No bones, no blood, no brains. And yet, jellyfish can actually hunt for food. Erik stopped liking jellyfish after he learned this fact.

How did this girl get into the jellies tank?

    Yes, I’d say “free” was a bit misleading in that situation!
    Last year, we were in the Cape Cod area and happened upon a Whaling Museum. It was amazing, because we probably wouldn’t have gone in at all- except it was raining and we had to wait for our ferry. Once inside, we found out it was free that day. We really learned a lot about whaling!
    Looks like you all had a great time at the aquarium!

      Free Day is always a good phrase for getting folks in the door! I think a Whaling Museum would be interesting but sad. One of the interpreters at the Shedd described the Belugas whales and the dolphins as “people who just happen to live underwater”, and I think she was onto something. They seems to have more intelligence than many people I have met.
