Meghan is Married
Los Angeles, California: Before the
wedding, Dave and I had the afternoon to explore Long Beach. We walked around
downtown and found a restaurant for lunch.
We had a nice outdoor table at
King's Fish House.
The red canopy gave us a rosy glow and we had an interesting view across the
street to BoBeau restaurant - which had some sort of wall covered with
Fresh rock fish with corn just-cut from the cob
After lunch we crossed the street to examine the succulents:
Interesting... but it looked better from across the street.
Long Beach waterfront
We continued our walk after lunch, heading down to the waterfront to spend
the afternoon at the
Aquarium of the
Pacific. I had visited
(with Lisa and Leo), but DT had yet to see the exhibits. We had half-price
coupons! The aquarium currently features jelly fish from different regions
of the Pacific.
The jelly fish just fascinate me - sorry to post so many photos. We watched
divers feed fish in a large tank, while standing next to a man who is a
diver/fish feeder for the aquarium. He said he has to buy new protective gloves
every few weeks - those rays have very small, very sharp teeth! Normally
bottom-feeders, the rays are trained to hang-out along the glass wall for food, to
entertain the customers!
We had a great afternoon at the aquarium, then headed back to our hotel to get
pretty for the wedding.
Meghan (Dave's niece) and Jamie were married on a terrace
overlooking the water, with views to the city of Long Beach. I will post just a
few photos - I was too busy dancing to use my camera:
Brother Billy is looking very happy. It was a beautiful and fun
wedding. Congratulations Meghan and Jamie!
Until my next update, I remain, your "Meghan's Married!" correspondent.
