The following postcard arrived a few days ago from Chicago:
I love jellyfish (except when I got stung by one – that hurt a ton). At the Monterey aquarium, I found the jellyfish to be mesmerizing in their shape, translucence, and movements. But I don’t remember them being this colourful. I didn’t see any jellyfish like this when I was at Shedd either. Has the postcard designer digitally enhanced the jelly?
Either way, it makes a great looking postcard, so I’m happy. Here’s the reverse side of the postcard:
“Jellies, discover the intriguing ways these pulsing, translucent animals survive – and thrive – in the world’s oceans.”
“I was amazed by the jellies! So, so cool! Still need to see the stained glass at the pier…”
The stained glass reference is to Chicago’s Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows at Navy Pier. I recommended seeing it as it’s one of my favourite (let alone free) Chicago sites. But then, I never saw the jellyfish like the above when I was there!
