Another change of sketching venue, as Julie and I visit Pier 39's adorable Aquarium of the Bay. You can blame Deb Aoki's sketchnoting evangelism for the infographic elements.
We got there just in time for the pygmy hedgehog show-and-tell.
The river otter exhibit was new to us. It's pretty big - this is just one window - and gives you a great view of the cavorting critters!
And here's everything I learned from the experience.
The skates and rays are still the star attractions, though. They're so friendly and curious, and keep coming up to be petted.
We all have our individual creature favorites. Julie is particularly fond of jellyfish.
As for me, I could watch the prawns all day long. Maybe next time I'll be able to get a good look at the shy octopus, too.
