Marine Life in the Gulf of Mexico


Ted and I took a weekend getaway to New Orleans! The city still has a long way to go to rebuild from Hurricane Katrina, but the downtown area is certainly coming back to life. The purpose of this trip was to relax for the weekend and to see the Audubon Aquarium located by the river in New Orleans.

My favorite exhibit was the jelly fish. They are amazing creatures. The one exhibit that stood out the most to me was the one paid for by the oil companies. As you can see it is set up like you are under an oil rig. With the spill going on out here, it may be a generation before the gulf looks like this again. Thank you Audubon Institute for educating us on our world under the sea!
