Pictures from My "Treat Weekend" (Part 1)

These pictures were taken at the COEX Aquarium in Seoul:

One of the exhibits featured dozens of alternatives to fishbowls, such as this watercooler.

This was my favorite "fishbowl."

Believe it or not, a two headed turtle. And it's alive, by the way. Awesome!

Hanging out with a few pretty squid.

Have you ever seen a turtle with such a long neck?!

I found this fish slightly disturbing!

One seal wanted to play; this one just wanted to rest.

No comments:

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
