We went to the Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association for a fab-fab-fabulous class on the life cycle of salmon. It included two naturalists for the three of us, video, discussion/talk, dissection, game, and art... all with the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge as a gorgeous backdrop. The girls were engaged and full of questions, which was a relief since often when they are the only kids they tune out, not wanting such exclusive adult attention. But Eugenia and Erica were great and as a result I learned a ton and was particularly intrigued to see fish gills dissected and the toothy tongue of the salmon, which was very much like something I'd only expect in a sci-fi film. Utterly fabulous, amazing, and cool....
