What made me remember is a Visa credit card commercial that was popular a year or two ago, and the song playing was the Moody Blues' Tuesday Afternoon. Morgan Freeman did the voice over.
That song came out around 1970, and it was one of my favorite songs and bands from that era. In the commercial, a doting father takes his little daughter to the aquarium, on a Tuesday afternoon, and because he has a Visa card, the admittance fee is not a problem.
Last Tuesday, I went into Brooklyn, met my friend Addie, and off we went.

We did enjoy this friendly (friendly??) sting ray - he had quite a personality and seemed to be doing flips and tricks for us.
The California Sea Lion thought he was on a red carpet of sorts - swinging his head this way and that way - basking in the sun.
Colorful coral always catches my eye
These fish looked like they were going to kiss
This fish seems to be very skinny, right?
This is another view of the same fish
|Don't know what that red mark is-sorry!|
|Not sure what this is-not a seal, walrus maybe?|
I wouldn't want to be scuba diving and see this coming at me!
|Looks almost like a hippo|
Sea horses look kind of frail
It was such a beautiful day, we went out to take a walk on the Boardwalk. This is the iconic Cyclone roller coaster ride. (No, I did not go on).
The parachute jump which has been closed for years, but it has landmark status so it cannot be torn down
Beach was kind of empty as it was still windy, the land mass way in the distance is the Jersey shoreline
I leave you with a little song that inspired me to visit this place, and I really enjoyed it.
