Quillback in Aquaria

A parting look at a must-see in Toronto – Ripley’s Aquarium – before the end of our brief summer holiday in Ontario this month.

I know, I know you’ve probably seen and read enough in my blogs over the past two weeks about Ontario’s tourist attractions, but I was drawn personally to the Aquarium (of which kind a number operate elsewhere in North America) and spent a couple of hours meandering its massive displays of colorful fish and less attractive ones of the predatory kind.

Without further ado, here is a short video of the Quillback Rockfish:

an adieu of sorts to a teeming metropolis abounding in fish, flora and fauna of many kinds from around the world – tout le monde!


You, Dear Reader, are one of over 75,000 since January 2015, when I first began to put “some of my thoughts, written down” and posted them in the blogosphere. All my content there is free of charge. Even so, many of you have urged me to seek support of my site and my writings by way of donations.

 My blog is about my life. It’s about what I’ve learned through the span of my life. It’s about things I love, and things I know and things I have experienced. I am humbled that so many of you want to join with me in my reflections. If you like what you find here, if it inspires or informs or amuses you, then I am content.

It would mean a lot to me if you would consider making a donation of US $1.00, $5.00, $10.00, or whatever amount you deem fit to sustain my work, and that amount can be safely donated via PayPal as per the form below.

The choice is yours as you make the most of your summertime with friends and family members.

And thank you for being a regular reader of the Azim Mayadas Blog!
