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.

King's Fish House

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 succulents.

After lunch we crossed the street to examine the succulents:

Interesting... but it looked better from across the street.

Aquarium of the Pacific - Long Beach

We continued our walk after lunch, heading down to the waterfront to spend the afternoon at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I had visited before (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:
