Denver Fishues

Photobucket

It was 97 degrees here today, so we decided to go someplace cool and wet.

Denver has a really nice aquarium and, after finding out that our hotel also provides complimentary shuttle service up to 2 miles, the decision was made.

I enjoy complimentary anything...

As you enter, they have this area of fish swimming above you...so it looks like they're flying.

Jellyfish are always so much nicer to see behind glass.

Sea Penises....how inappropriate!

This seahorse blew chunks right after I took this picture....very delicate.

Why a mechanical "Not without my monkey" display is featured, I have no idea.

And what's with the spiders in every aquarium? They don't swim....

This is a very large fish...one of the many reasons I don't swim in any water where I can't see the bottom.

We went to the Denver Children's museum just as it was closing...so we didn't get in. So much for my scary doll search.

There is always tomorrow....

Don't fail to stroll through the lovely Cheesman Park... and drop by The Tattered Cover bookstore if it's still there. :-) I love the mile high city!

It is on our list...if it doesn't pour down rain tomorrow. Fingers crossed. =)
