We attended the open studio of artist Dacy Kolsky in downtown Sacramento recently and really enjoyed her art and the vibe of being in her studio. Check out her mixed media collage work! Her art has an neon Andy Warhol meets 80’s throwback vibe from the time before digital when everything was actually done by hand.

Seaquest opened a branch in Folsom, California and I was fortunate enough to be gifted an annual family pass. I stopped in to see what all the fuss was about and saw a line of hundreds out the door! Soooo, I stopped by again another day after the kids were back in school and found it to be an interesting an enjoyable visit. It boasts turtles which can be touches and petted, a bird sanctuary with parakeets and lorikeets, piglets, lizards, frogs, lots of fish, rays, snakes, and ducks. I must say I can’t believe it is the safest or healthiest of habitats for the animals which leaves me a little unsettled. But, I can say it is a spectacular way to teach and inspire children about animals, sea life, and the ocean by allowing them to see, touch, smell, talk to, and interact with the animals. Nevertheless, I am not sure how much it teaches about management and care of wildlife…
These guys always look like they are smiling from this angle
Folks can snorkel with and touch the animals
Pool with a view!
Petting zoo for little ones…surprised they don’t make everyone mandatorily wash their hands before and after…
