You may not know this, but an octopus has a very keen sense of taste and can tell the difference between people just by putting his suckers on you. This is a little fact that I learned while away this past weekend with Amy, Chris B, Sue and Matty at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a fun little field trip we took from San Francisco this past weekend. I asked if I could get the octopus to suck on me to see if we could be friends and somehow that was weird.
Anyway, it cost about $22 a person and we spent a few hours wondering through otters, trout, octopus, penguins and lots of other fish. It was a pretty good time and was only a few short hours away.
Sorry, no photos. The camera batteries died on the first photo.
