We, unfortunately, do not have an aquarium here in our little town of Athens, Ohio, so I had to get a little creative. We were also snowed in...so except for a quick visit to the doctor's and the grocery store, we were home! We made do with the fishes we could find...
No Fishing!!! A sign you might see at an aquarium...this one was a bit unnecessary, being located in the midst of a waiting room full of sick people.
On to the grocery store!!! Wild Caught, Farm Raised...hm, again, signs one probably won't see in a real aquarium.
So pretty in their pinkness. However, see that sign, "advertised special" on the crab cakes? I fell for that once, and let me tell you. No one in this part of Ohio has any business making or eating crab cakes.By this time I had been asked twice if we needed any help at the seafood counter, so I didn't risk clambering up onto the cooler case to get a better peak at the captives, but I assure you, there was a greenish murk to the water in there, promising the presence of some poor critter.
How we wish we could have visited an aquarium this week! The jellies, the rays, the touchables, and our favorites, the sharks...sigh. We'll have to visit vicariously through the other posts of this shoot-out!
