SEA LION SOUND
ST. LOUIS ZOO

On a hot 100˚ summer day,
I visited the new Sea Lion Sound exhibit
at the St. Louis Zoo,
and found relief from the heat!

The new 1.5-acre aquatic exhibit
had long been under construction,
and finally open to the public on July 1.
It features a 40,000-gallon see-through pool,
so visitors can watch seals
on top and underneath the water.

Watching these sleek sea lions swim and play
underneath the water seemed like a cooling break.

It was!

  5. Reading the comment you left about the rain, I gasped at the first photo above thinking that it flooded, until the full photo displayed. OMG! Ah Rick, I know that drought. My landscape is permanently altered because of the drought that killed 30-year old established hedges and bushes. I am glad it rained and I hope it rains again. On the other hand I hope it stops raining in the Philippines. Manila is flooded, again. Have a wonderful day.

  6. Oh by the way, I love going to aquaria. There is a certain delight in seeing large marine animals swimming without the fear of being gobbled up by them or drowning. You captured that beautiful aqua color.
