Scripps Birch Aquarium and Cabrillo Monument


Heather and I spent an enjoyable day touring around San Diego with some friends from Montana. We thought we would tailor the day's touring around something they don't have in Helena . . . salt water.  

We started at the Scripps Birch Aquarium. The jellyfish tanks are some of my favorites.



The kelp forest tank is always fun to watch.


They've got a few new seahorse exhibits that are definitely worth stopping in to see.


After the Aquarium we stopped at the Cabrillo National Monument, site of the Point Loma Lighthouse.


There is a little spiral staircase that leads up to top of the light.


It only seemed appropriate to have lunch at the Fish Market Restaurant on Harbor Drive afterwards.
