The Jelly Man Lives

San Francisco

My family and I visited San Francisco’s Golden Gate park one day and I believe it must have been a holiday because we were trying to go into the Science Museum and the line was rediculous. We ended up wandering around the rest of the park, but a few months later we timed it right and went back to see the Science Museum.

The Science Museum

We were amazed of all the stuff that was in the museum. I had no idea the place had existed until we stumbled upon it. We came across the Jelly Fish exhibit and I have always been a fan of them. I snapped this photo while watching this guy swim around. I even came across what I recall as the Banana Spider from when I was in Okinawa, Japan back in 1999-2000. I will try to share the photo with you and the story of the encounter we had while we were in the Jungle.


I guess the moral of this story is that, make sure you plan your trips accordingly and don’t be afraid to go back again if it can be done.

Thanks for reading.

Barn Owl

I snapped this photo of this Barn Owl right off of Highway 33 on my way to work.

Ok, I know you guys are probably going to think I am going crazy because I am taking photos of dead animals but trust me I am not.  I was reading an article last week that discussed that California actually developed a website to track the deadliest roads for animals. 

The California Roadkill Observation System is a system that is allowing volunteers to enter in observations of when they come across a Roadkill!  It is very simple to do and it cost nothing to get started.  The observation entry form can be a little tricky when it comes to picking the exact location of the observation but if they had an iPhone app for it I am sure it would be popular.

I actually have entered in two observations in two days.  I came across two different Barn Owls that seemed to have been struck by something.

This one doesn’t look too bad but it is very shocking to see all the different areas that are being tracked on the map.  I looked at Highway 33 which is one that I travel along everyday on my way to work and I didn’t see any entries so I figured I need to do my part and start helping scientists to find a reason why all these animals keep getting killed.

If you would like to do your part and enter observations for Roadkills then visit their site today and get signed up.

That’s all for today!

Thanks for reading!
