Market Friday visits the Baltimore Aquarium

in #marketfridaylast year (edited)


Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise! That is me!)


I hope you will join us as we share different markets. It has been such a pleasure to see markets from all over the world. Who doesn't love to see what they are selling? There is always a curiosity attached to foreign ingredients, different produce or any product sold. So, yes! I would love to see yours! So don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery, art galleries, wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Don't forget to use the hashtag #marketfriday and @dswigle.


Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. They will all be in one place!! Thank you! ❤


It is such a beautiful day today, let's go to the Baltimore Aquarium! It is located down on the Pier in the inner harbor of downtown Baltimore. It is so nice to go downtown there now, especially near the harbor. It has the best sights and sounds and food! I'm all ready!! How about you?? Let's go!!! Oh, yes!


Admission:
Adults: $39.95
Seniors (65+): $34.95
Children (3-11): $24.95
Children 2 and under free

The Jellies. I love this room! It is my favorite room in the whole place! It is literally filled with tanks and you can spin a 360 and watch as each tank has a live ballet being performed at that very moment, trailing her tentacles behind her.



Welcome To The Jelly Room






CUE THE MUSIC MAESTRO!

Do you know how jellyfish move? They squirt water out of their mouth and contract and relax muscles to push them forward. Isn't nature amazing? Seriously.




The Pacific sea nettle’s body, which is referred to as a bell, is yellow in color, to reddish-brown, and the long, ruffled tentacles can be yellow to dark maroon. They are always so impressive looking in the aquarium as they swimm around, their long tentacles following them!



These are called Moon Jellyfish. It is easy to see why. They are most commonly found on the coasts of North America and Europe as they like that temperature of water. Their life span is about one year, from beginning to end.




STOP!! BRAIN TEASER AHEAD!!

Question: I am in heaven but not in hell. I’m in the devil but not in god. I’m in the river but not in the sea. What am I?

Answer! Can you guess??? I am the letter "V"!!!


IMG_4313-001.JPG


Yes! That hand you see is mine! I got to reach out and touch them! Do you know what a jellyfish feels like? If we are talking about the clear, see-thru ones, they feel like jelly. Not sticky at all, but very soft. The darker red ones with the long tentacles feel like jelly.

Cool, but, strange feeling.

They are impossibly beautiful, with the grace of a ballerina. Who can resist their charm?


IMG_4343.JPG


Just look at this Lobed Comb Jelly. They shimmer under the set of black lights. They are jelly-like invertebrates with bright, iridescent color bands. We actually have them in the Chesapeake Bay, here in the Northern Virginia-Washington, DC area. They are also found in most oceans.

"Comb jellies have both male and female reproductive organs and can actually fertilize themselves. Each comb jelly releases about 8,000 eggs per spawn. Unlike jellyfish, comb jellies develop without distinctive larval and polypoid stages. Comb jelly species are difficult to distinguish from each other when they are young."

Did you know that a group of jellyfish is called a bloom

The time has come! Let's shop until we drop. You know you want to!!

I could see myself wearing these! Who doesn't want a set of cool socks?

Steemin with my coffee in a peanut butter and jelly cup. To be honest, most of the souvenirs were not of high quality except for their clothing and the rest were just fun things for the kids. So, I didn't score much in the merchandise, but, I have memories of some enchanting jellies.

Everything you could ever want from a gift shop! Stuffed seals to little bug boxes! I can remember having a bug box and keeping a pet or two. I spent hours of fun perusing this gift shop and incidentally bought nothing. I would say that I could be considered be a cheap date.




Oh, wait!!! Did you see that they have some stuffed sea turtles? Oh, what a decision!! Turtle or seal or both? Or none? Let's make a decision here!

Below is the USS Torsk, a World War ll Tench-class Fleet submarine, one of the two that are left. It used to have shark teeth painted on the front and they are no longer there. It is open for tours.

Thanks for coming with me to the Baltimore Aquarium. I only took you to the jellyfish room. I need to save a little something for a later date. Right? So, I hope you enjoyed and I'll be looking out for your #MarketFriday post!

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

I am so jelly over those photos! (See what I did there) Well a good thing they dont have any Irukandji jellyfish floating in the petting tank! I hear those things are horrible! Well admission is not cheap but seemingly well worth it!! Oh such stunning pics! Even the sub looks like it has been through the war... I am on a roll with the funnies today. Just stand back and watch out lol.

Oh my gosh! You made a funny! I'm not sure what kind of jellyfish those are that you mentioned, but I'm pretty sure then I'm glad that they're not in the petting tank.

If you say that you heard they're terrible, I'm going to take your word for it. It's been a long time since I have been stung by a jellyfish, but I haven't forgotten what it feels like. The admission is not cheap, and although it's worth every penny, the Steep price makes it impossible if you have a young family and you're counting your pennies. I was pretty surprised the first time I went and saw how much it was. Perhaps because the aquarium in Washington DC was free or if it wasn't for you was pretty cheap. It has since closed. I'm sure there's no correlation between the two. LOL

Yes because the aquarium is right on the wharf they have the battleship and other ships docked there. As always, thank you for stopping by and taking a look-see! I hope you have a good rest of your day.

!tip

Well the good thing is we dont have Irukandji here. They are in warmer waters off Australia. Peopla are hospitalized and the symptoms are so agonizing that people can literally have cardiac arrest from the pain. The weird thing is they are about the size of your thumbnail lol. See how full I am with useless and less than amazing trivia lol.

All those things are deadly, or they can be. They are in the venomous species a box jellyfish. I can honestly say that I'm glad we don't have them over here, being as I love playing in the water. They are so tiny and one of the most venomous in the world. Thankfully for me, but not for Australia, they inhabit the waters in the northern part of Australia. Thanks for all your useful information. You never know what I'm going to need it.

Oh my lol...

LOVE the photos! They are truly beautiful creatures. So funny..I was talking to my husband yesterday about visiting the Aquarium. He has a couple days off next month and we haven't been in years. This makes me even more excited to go! I have felt jellyfish in the ocean and they are soft and strange feeling indeed but their sting is not..ouch! ;)

Thank you so much! They really are such gracefully beautiful creatures. I just love listening to the music in the jelly room at the aquarium and I think I could stand there all day, being mesmerised by their slow and oh so lovely movements.

I hope your husband and you do go to the aquarium. It seems like I don't go for a long time and then I want to go for a week, on a daily basis. I'm glad you were excited and yes! I think anybody who has spent any length of time going in the water throughout their life has probably come across one or two, and hopefully they are the harmless kind. Although it does not sound like yours was harmless.

Well the Blossom Festival is having their Kite Festival this weekend and takes place around the Washington Monument. It should be a good time all know it's going to be intermittent clouds which means the pictures will not be in the least bit nice. Oh well, it happens. It's just a hop skip and jump down to the Tidal Basin, so I think I will just mingling with the crowd and go see the cherry blossoms once again. And again. And again. They're so short-lived I have to get down and look at them every chance I get.

For stopping by and I hope you have a most fabulous weekend.

!tip

You're very welcome and thank you! We are going to try to make it but it does seem that some things are coming up that need attention. Isn't that always the way?! At least for me it seems.
I hope the weather holds out for you and I'm sure you will have an awesome time regardless but always more fun without the rain.
Ahh..yes! Enjoy those cherry blossoms! Such a beautiful thing to see every chance one can!

It was absolutely gorgeous! I will take another peruse during the week when It is not so crowded. :)

Looks like the perfect place for me to learn about sea life, fish and the rest that comes with it. The ticket is a bit pricey for my pocket but I might make it back with a good post on Steemit 😉
I want a pair of socks!!! Or two or as many as available 😁
Here's my entry Hand Pained Eggs For MarketFriday and you have to congratulate me for dropping the link

Oh, but yes, it is!! The tickets were surprisingly pricey, but, I thought that it was because our aquarium in Washington, DC was free, as are most of the zoos and museums in the area. As it should be. How can people become educated and know the ways of the world with price tags like that on it?

I did my post on my dinner at work, so excuse it. Oh, my! It was busy and I would have liked to have done it ahead of time or a little more to it, but, it is what it is!

I do love those socks!! LOL Socks are my thing. :)

Thank you for dropping the link. Congratulations! :) I appreciate your thoughtfulness and for taking the time and effort to make this a success!

!tip

I agree with you on that, but unfortunately aquariums and museums are not for free, tickets are very expensive. What bothers me more is that in some countries in Europe even churches have entrance fees, which is very, very bad. I remember in Germany almost every church had a fee ranging from €7 to €10. Strange and bad habits.

Thank you for your support.

Jelly fish....mmmmmm...i have never really taken much notice of this sea creature only that i know they can be dangerous coming into contact with them but you have shown a different side to them and i imagine by the sounds of it you do love these sea creature to a certain degree and i did learn something new about these jellyfish today in the way they move along by squirting water out of their mouth and contract and relax muscles to push them forward interesting and i will say i do love visiting aquariums they do have a awesome one here in Bangkok that i haven't seen yet and i must one day. Thanks for sharing that info a interesting post indeed my friend :)

Well have a great weekend my friend and here is my post....!!

MarketFriday - initiated by @dswigle - Precious Stones of Bangkok !!

hjaapdaesl.jpg

Hi, Angelo! @hangin

Well if you do any diving at all, it's not hard to take notice of them as they are free-floating in the ocean and in some Lakes, although not as common.

They can be dangerous and some of them will sting you, but there are a lot that are simply harmless. It really is kind of cool the way they move about. It sounds funny when you're trying to explain it to somebody but that is the truth of the matter. I love visiting aquariums also and I cannot believe that they actually have one in Bangkok and you have not been to it. I smell a new market Friday coming up in a month or so.

It's always my pleasure to share a market post with you and I am always grateful that you take the time to come over and read it. Although, God knows where you get the time with all that you do and your schedule. Including the parties! Well, the weekend is coming up so I will bet you a happy weekend and I will go to Richard post.

!tip

Yep the aquarium would make a lovely market Friday for sure i will keep that one under my hat...lol :)

Always a pleasure reading your market Friday's and i really can't explain to you how i get it all done but i try my best to make it all happen...hehe :)

Have a awesome weekend also my friend :)

You certainly do get it all done! I just don't understand it! :)

But, I am glad that you can. At least one of us does!

I don't need much sleep or rest ....hehe :)

Thank you so much for your very kind,! So, let me get this right. Do you like the pictures but no socks? Are you sure you don't want those that look likes the shark and teeth? I am pretty sure that they would make a fashion statement that nobody would ever forget!

Thanks for being part of the fun and stopping over and saying hello! I hope you have a wonderful weekend that is coming up!

🤔 I do like socks. Much needed with the weather here. Also do like special socks just not the one you showed!
I am also a b Christmas sweater guy 😂
Enjoy the weekend!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Well there you go! So I take it that you have cold weather so I'm glad that you like socks, especially special ones. They're kind of fun to have. I'm not quite sure what you were saying about the Christmas sweater but I hope you are not one of those ugly Christmas sweater people! There has been some pretty interesting looking ones that I have seen. I hope you have a wonderful weekend yourself.

Hahah :D I was like...wait...@dswigle? it's her, or? I haven't been to the market for months soo can't join haha :D

Come on! Surely you haven't eaten in the last couple months? Because if you had please send me your address so that I may rush you some food!

Only kidding, of course. As you can see I don't use traditional markets most of the time. I just use something that I have gone to that I might have paid for. I think it keeps the options open and makes it a little bit more interesting. I'm pretty sure if I went to the grocery store or Market every week, my readers would be bored stiff and I would have to close this challenge. LOL

The fact that you came over and showed your support is good enough for me. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have a most wonderful day. Now get yourself to that market!

Looks like you enjoyed your visit to B-more! I love the jellies!

I love going to Baltimore! It really is pretty close and I laugh when people talk about going all the way to Baltimore. When I looked in Connecticut, I commuted to New York City and although that wasn't too far, it was made long by the traffic which was more than horrible a daily basis. So I took the commuter rail.

I have been to the aquarium probably about four times this year oh, so I probably should just become a member. But then as soon as I do, I probably will only go once a year! I love their Waterfront and it is such an interesting City to photograph. Glad you like the jellies! They're pretty cool, but I think when you're driving and you come across something that big floating across you, the adrenaline pumps up a little bit higher! You have yourself a fabulous weekend and thank you for visiting Market Friday.

We've been several times. It's amazing how much they have packed into that place. I always liked the part at the top.. The atrium?? Then when your done, there are a lot of cool restaurants to get a bite to eat in. Not too far from the inner harbor is Fells Point.. Ever been?? We have caught a glimpse of a few celebrity types in that area. Cute boutique shops to enjoy there. Hope it was a fun day had by all!! You grabbed some awesome shots :-O

The last Jelly Fish I saw was in I think October. In the bay behind Ocean City MD.. Don't Know what kind, but it looked cool :-D

You've been several times? I can see how that would happen. It's less than an hour from my house so it makes for a nice visit, especially since they have closed down the Washington DC Aquarium. I'm not sure if you've ever been to that one oh, but you would remember it because you have to go down a set of stairs to get to it. You almost would pass it on the street because it was so insignificant looking and when you stepped inside it was quite amazing.

The last time I did a post on the aquarium I included The Atrium in it because I thought it was so cool! As a matter of fact it was right outside the jelly invasion. I've actually never been to Fells Point, I don't think, but it's not ringing a bell although there are lots of cute boutiques in the area and there are always notable people wandering about in Baltimore or in Washington DC.

It was a wonderful day and it's kind of hard to not get a good shot of those jellyfish! They're always on display, showing off their good side as they do the Jelly Belly across the tank.

For some reason I want to say that October was a big month for jellyfish on the shore. If I remember correctly, and I don't always, it felt like the jellyfish invasion. I absolutely love your picture of it! Thank you so much for visiting Market Friday and I always appreciate your kind words. I'll be over to check out your link and thank you for dropping it. Have a most enjoyable weekend!

They are so beautiful and yet deadly... life...

Oh, I agree with you! For the most part, they aren't going to kill you but, make you pretty miserable. The tiny little box jellies are notoriously toxic. So, as they are only found in Australia, I feel pretty safe, but, let me knock on wood somewhere!

Thanks for stopping by #MarketFriday! It is always appreiated!

I heard that in America the prices are lower than in Israel, but a ticket to this amazing place is not cheap! Maybe I can pass for the baby? ))))) Jellyfish are certainly very beautiful creations! I have never seen brown completely. but I would not like to meet them in the ocean))))) hee hee))))) I am delighted with these socks !!!! )))) I guess I would definitely buy them. I will still think over your riddle. so far I have no options
https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@tali72/marketfriday-a-fair-in-the-old-town-da770abf1b1

Well, some things are cheaper and some things not so much. Entertainment can be quite pricey! I think you and I both should hop in a stroller and pass ourselves off as babies. Yes!! I'm in!!

They are such lovely creatures when they are performing their water ballet! I agree with you there. Almost poetic, it is as they glide across the tank, their tendrils waving behind them. I am not afraid of them out in the water, but, I do not try to get in their path either.

They don't run after me, so I have no fear!

I loved those socks also and would definitely buy more of them! :)

The riddle was a little more difficult, I think.:) Good luck!

hee hee hee))))) you outwitted me with a riddle))))) I really broke my whole head but never found the answer. everything turned out to be much easier))))) thank you, my dear!!!!! in Israel in the summer very large jellyfish swim to the shore. Usually people are warned in advance about the beginning of the period of jellyfish so that people refrain from swimming in the sea. on the shore put up special flags. but often people ignore it or tourists don’t know what it means. often this ends with a hospital due to burns. so I'm afraid to swim in that period

I like visiting the aquarium, too.
One time I went scuba diving and there were hundreds of giant lions head jellies drifting with me. It was exciting.

Posted using Partiko Android

I can not in a million years imagined hundreds of those giant lions head Joe he's coming at me! But, I think you're ! That would be rather exciting and I bet it's something you'll never forget!

They certainly do make an entrance don't they? I do love the aquarium however, I will say that being out there in the Open Water trumps that any day of the week! And I love being out in the water and just imagining Classical Ballet in my head. Because that's what it looks like to me oh, the dance of the jellies.

Thank you for stopping over and say hello and looking at my post. I hope you have a most wonderful day!

You are right! I am trying to show different types of jellyfish in the jelly room. They are so fun to watch and I do love going to the aquarium! I hope you got to listen to the Beautiful music as the jellyfish did their ballet across the tanks. It's always a fun day when the aquarium is involved. Do you have an aquarium that is convenient for you to go to? I think that ours is on the expensive side, however, they certainly give you your money's worth.

I want to thank you for stopping by and leaving your words Plus dropping your link for your Market Friday challenge. Is much appreciated tunnel all the hard work put into participating. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Fantastic shots. Jelly fish are so strange ! We get some here in summer and they aren't so fun to bump into when your out swimming or surfing. Nothing like the really nasty ones in Australia though :)

Hey! Thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind comment and the fact that you like my pictures! Jellyfish really are strange creatures. I have bumped into a whole lot of them in the water, but rarely receive any attention from them.

Until I did one day! Yikes!

I have not been diving in Australia anything else they have in their country is a odd, crazy or downright who the heck is God mad at? Of course I'm only kidding but they do have the market excessively nasty creatures! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your words. I hope you have a good rest of your day.

The photos are great! I'm thinking an aquarium is really the best way to see them! At least the safest anyway Haha :) I read a book about Australia called In a Sunburned Country that is absolutely amazing. There are so many fantastic and strange things there.

They are definitely the land of plenty!! (of odd and unusual things!) And thank you!

Hello, Svetlana! @singa

Thank you so much for visiting #MarketFriday and for the always beautiful words that you leave behind. I have always loved jellyfish also, but my sister does not have as fond of feelings as I do. But she has been stung several times and so does not like to go further than her knee when she is in the water. I'm not sure that you can do anything in only knee-deep water, but to each his own.

I agree that everyone should have a pair of socks like that! So bright and happy what is not to love? LOL

Thank you so much for being a part of Market Friday and stopping in with your kind words and I appreciate you taking the time to make another wonderful post it support of this challenge. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

!tip

And thank you very much for your attention and positive, which is always full of your interesting messages, dear Denise!

Have a good weekend!

You too, my dear Svetlana!

After this relaxing video and the beautiful pictures, the weekend can be coming. Thank you very much!
My entry for today: https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@almi/market-friday-in-mdina

That was the most relaxing video of the jellyfish wasn't it? I just love watching them do their little ballet in the confines of the aquarium. So beautiful and graceful and truly elegant looking. Who knew that their sting could be so deadly? Alas, it brings to mind the saying, if looks could kill!

So happy to see you and thank you so much for dropping your link! I hope you have a most wonderful weekend and I will head over to check yours out!

I love this market Friday post jellyfish are just so cool to watch aren’t they and as far those socks I would for sure wear them :)
!tip

There really is something so soothing about watching the ballet of the jellyfish. They just float across the water and their tentacles softly waving behind them. Just watching them is mesmerizing.

I actually can see you in those socks and I'm pretty sure that would be the day you're wearing shorts to work, just so everybody can see them! Now I would never take you for an exhibitionist, but when I'm talkin about showing off socks, I say you are!

Thank you for always keeping my posts attention and participating. I hope that you have a most amazing weekend.

The way you paint a picture with your words is magical, as you did with the first sentence of this comment describing the jellyfish

Lol at the thought of me wearing shorts to the office some would be in shock at my tattoos on my legs LOL

Thank you so much, JJ! @tattoodjay

You have to admit, they do have such a graceful way about them that it would be hard not to think those things, right? :)

Oh, I was laughing out loud at the thought of those legs hanging out of those shorts, all tattooed up! Perhaps you should do it once before you retire!!!

C'mon! Live a little!

Maybe for my last day I should wear shorts colorful socks and a T-Shirt, I mean what can they do it would be too late to fire me LOL

Hmm maybe not a good idea I am planning my last day to be in winter not really shorts weather LOL

OMG! I would pay good money to see that! Send me an invite! LOL Oh, don't be a spoiled sport! :)

LOL I know you would, lets see it may come to pass :)

Hehe! What is going to be your presumed day of doneness?

Oh, what amazing these jellyfish!
..unfortunately I have a post today only about birds
Good weekend to you, Denise- @dswigle !

Leyla! No worries, ever! It's fun to go around and do different challenges and I will of Keith's feathered Friday! If I have time oh, I will try to get one in for that too today. It's one of the challenges that I really do love and even though I do not have many bird pictures per se, Keith is my friend and I like to support him. Of course, I also like to make sure that I take care of Market Friday too.

I am so happy that you had the time to stop in and say hello and it is so it's good to see you! I hope you have a pleasant weekend and that it gives you many opportunities to take pictures for next week!

That does look real cool. Is the aquarium a part of the zoo? Over the dinner the other night, my grandson was telling me about his trip to the Baltimore Zoo and he said something about jellyfish. He was excited because he got to pet the alligators and snakes. And the jellyfish. He's 11 years old and loves wild animals. Especially the predators.

Awesome post.

Actually the aquarium is not part of the zoo. It's a standalone. If you look in the last picture where it has the battleship in it, the background shows the National Aquarium. I've actually not been to the Baltimore Zoo because the national.zoo is here in the Washington DC area and it's huge and it's free. LOL

But perhaps I should look at the Baltimore Zoo as I've never been there and I have no doubt that they probably do have a exhibit for reptiles and under the sea. They do have babies that allows both kids and adults to hold them and handle them. Isn't nature amazing?

I'm not sure what to make of fact that he loves predators. One of my daughters does also and it used to be a little unnerving. Thank you for the kind words and for stopping by and saying hello! I hope you have a most wonderful weekend!

!tip

Thank you. You're very kind. I appreciate the tip.

We love the national zoo! I think the kids like predators because that's what they are. They're like family. lol

Happy Markey Friday, Denise! Aquarium with jellyfish is a place one can hang out and get stuck staring at their moving forever ... ))
Thank you so much for your amazing words, they are a lightening of every Friday!

Here is my report as well :)

Amazing way, you are right! I could have stayed in there all day because I was just mesmerized. Watching the ballet of the jellies.

It is always amazing to watch their poetic movements as they Glide across the tanks. It is definitely a thing of beauty.

Thank you so much and I hope you have a most amazing weekend. I appreciate as well that you drop your link here and thank you for the time spent Gathering and posting you are through Friday challenge.
