Roy's Postcards: 1984/11/01


Leonard, I went to the Waikiki Aquarium this afternoon and saw this sea life. It was a lot like the Marine Museum except it had 2 seals.

I love you-

Leonard's comments:

2 seals, huh? I'm pretty sure we went to this aquarium when I visited Hawaii becauase I remember seeing the giant clam. It left quite an impression on me because there's a giant clam in Colossal Cave.
