The Aquarium

Violet has been busy preparing for a series of tests she has to take at school this week. So, no diary last week. Stay tuned for her next entry, folks.

I went to the Okhotsk Aquarium with my wife yesterday to say good-by to the friendly seals, stunning sea lions, scary-but-hopefully-good-natured wolf fish, and stuff. Looking over the 46-year-old aquarium, I couldn't help feeling how small and old and downhill it is. Once it used to be a wonderland for me as a child. Have you ever experienced -- when you revisit a place where you once spent your childhood, you find the street narrow, the playground small, everything smaller than you felt in those days?

The Okhotsk Aquarium will see the end of its history on August 31. Nostalgia.
