More on Melbourne

So, apart from going to the Paperific Expo, we also went to the Melbourne Aquarium.  If you haven't been there yet, believe me it's well worth a visit.  We were there a few years ago and thought it was good then, but they have made some improvements and it's even better now.  Along with all the fish they have a flock?? of King Penguins and they are absolutely gorgeous. 

These pictures don't do them justice.  I've only ever seen them on photos and film but to see them in real life ... they are magnificent. They also have some Gentoo penguins as well. These guys are great swimmers and really cheeky.

These pictures are not the best but I only have a small camera and the shutter speed is not really fast enough for action shots, but these guys are really cute.

And then there are the fish ...


And the jellyfish ...

And crabby things ...

And Nautilus Shells ...

 And Cuttlefish ...

And the big boys ...

You can't really tell from the photo but this Groper is enormous.
They also have Seahorses and Sea Dragons but, unfortunately, my photos didn't come out too well.
This is a very small sampling of what you can see there and believe me it is well worth the visit.
We spent quite a few hours wandering around, it was a great day.

That's all for now. Thanks for visiting and God Bless.
