Long Beach Beauties


I love staring at jellyfish at aquariums. So do a lot of other people. They are among the most beautiful and hypnotic of creatures. The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA, has a terrific collection, among them these splendid sea nettles. The aquarium may not compete with some of the nation’s more well-known and larger ones, but it’s a gem, has more touch tanks than any I’ve visited and was interesting enough to keep my grandchildren occupied for hours.
