Two weeks ago I was in Boston for some family business. I took part of a day to visit the New England Aquarium. It was pretty impressive! The center of the facility was a multiple-story coral reef. There was a spiral ramp around it that let you walk from bottom to top. The reef was teeming with life. Very cool. Around the spiral ramp the rest of the building housed regional tanks with salt and freshwater species from around the world.

Of course, I took a ton of photos. Here are a few:
