No, this post is not a reference to the dismal stock market and the sorry state of so many of our investments in this free-falling market. It is about the very interactive aquarium along the shores of the Delaware, across the Ben Franklin bridge, a stones throw from the Philadelphia metropolis, i.e., a special spot on the waterfront in scary Camden, New Jersey. Along with the lovely 2-year-old Layla, today we explored the fishes and critters and plants in the underwater dioramas of the Adventure Aquarium. I even petted the spitting shark, Max, as he trolled the surface to impress the visitors. The African penguins and seals outside were a treat, too, although it was quite cool and blustery outside for the humans. The Delaware had some healthy whitecaps whipped up.
