Snorkeling with Leopard Sharks at the Marine Room!

Leopard Shark at Marine Room, La Jolla, California

Yeah, I usually dive.

But it was a sunny day, and the shallow water was clear. And who wants to put on a drysuit and carry all that heavy scuba equipment across the beach in the hot sun?

Not me, not yesterday.

But the leopard sharks have moved in at La Jolla. And I had to see them.

So I figured I'd try a different approach, and I brushed the dust off my wetsuit and snorkel and headed to the Marine Room in pursuit of all critters shallow and sand-dwelling.

TOTALLY fun.

We saw piles of bat rays...
