“CATS GALORE!” A LITTLE HANDMADE BOOK I MADE FILLED WITH CATS GALORE WATERCOLORS! Some of the cat watercolors are embellished with paper flowers made out of rice paper and hand painted & bejeweled. Other cats have washi tape embellishments or punched paper flowers, hearts or birds. There are about 40 cats I think & it was a very fun project. More “Cats Galore” to come!
HARBOR SEAL PUPPING SEASON IN LA JOLLA, SAN DIEGO IS IN FULL SWING NOW! The Harbor seal colony has 15 healthy, thriving & playful pups as of yesterday. All are bonded with attentive moms & are delightful to watch. There are more pregnant seals arriving everyday, too! Here’s a few photos of a pup enjoying seal life on an eel-grass covered reef at low tide. Mom is so patient. The pup nurses enthusiastically! The tide starts to come in, the seals raise their tails & heads to stay dry. The pups are on their way to being a member of the La Jolla Harbor seal colony. It is a delight and a privilege to be able to observe them.
