Jellies II

More jellies, less typos.


Shark tunnel at the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. It was awesome. I got to touch a shark. They feel like sandpaper. More to come.

The Roanoke Star

The Julie Bee and I went down to the Noke with some friends. Apparently there is a gigantic star. Who knew?

I rode up to Philadelphia last Thursday with my dad. It was a fantastic ride all through Virginia. Then we got to Maryland. Those white streaks are little meteors that pelted us relentlessly until we sought refuge under some trees. Stupid hail.
