Earlier this year my dear husband of nearly of quarter of a century celebrated his 70th Birthday. So rather then spend it at home, I planned a 3 day outing for him. We spend a few days in Monterey. The highlight of our stay was a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
As the year is nearing it's end, I wanted to share some of the images I took that day.
This Abalone shell was resting in a shallow pool, allowing visitors a close-up look and touch of it, and the brilliant sea stars and seaweeds alongside it.


  1. The abalone shell has EYES! Two very different eyes, but eyes just the same.

    How nice that you had that outing together. Something to remember for many years to come.

  2. Pretty markings on that one.
    I have one in a not so natural setting. It's hanging on the grape trellis with cactus growing in it!
