Follow Friday – Indecent Manta Ray Edition

11 Mar

Thanks for all the support I’ve received on Twitter. The tsunami resulting from the horrific earthquake in Japan seemed to pass over Hawaii with little or no damage, and my relatives on the coast can evacuate at a moment’s notice if need be. My heart goes out to the countless victims in Japan.  

The photos in today’s edition are from a trip my friends and I took to San Francisco for my bestie’s birthday. We visited an aquarium where a Manta Ray totally flashed Justin his naughty bits. (Angela kind of loves mantas.) Later we had an indulgent dinner and pretended we were child-free youngsters again. The best part about the aquarium is that it had a conveyor belt that lead you through the tunnel, so you didn’t have to use your legs like a sucker.
