Scenes from a baby shower that caught my eyes …
… footprints across balloons …
… floating giraffes …
… beaded sandals …
… beanie babies and their babies …
… neon green nails and a butterfly ring …
… and Jethro …
… listening attentively … and picking his cage lock … yes, a padlock.
Clever bird knows how to open up the latch on his cage, so now he’s permanently locked in. Poor bird.
Here’s all the other fish that I had time to see.
Some of them wouldn’t sit still long enough for me to take their picture. They were too busy swimming around.
I think I disturbed them sitting on their couch, watching all these humans pass by.

After I had finished looking at the corals, I went walking among the rows of fish tanks and aquariums, and came upon this … the Volitan Lionfish.
I think he didn’t like me taking his pictures, as he started swimming towards me, with all his fins out.
This was easily my favourite fish that day. There were others with their bright colours, or their size that I found interesting. But this one I wanted to take home with me.
But he was a saltwater fish, so we couldn’t. Besides, he might eat up the angel and goldfish that we have in the aquarium, if he doesn’t sting them first with his venomous spines.
Maybe I can convince hubby to set up a small saltwater tank ….
Apologies again for the quality of the photos. They hadn’t gotten around to cleaning his tank, so the water streaks or scratches hadn’t been cleaned yet. Next time, we’ll go visit in the afternoon.
