ONCE IN A BLUE MOON & OTHER SEA SHELLS – SAN DIEGO

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON – SHELL!  Lovely shells on the beach during a minus tide.  Photographing shells is such a wonderful way to “collect” them.  I placed a Limpet shell “pearl” inside an open Mussel shell.  I carry this beauty in my heart.

Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, California

Just delivered a shipment of “A Guide to San Diego Sea Shells” to the Birch Aquarium. Such a lovely aquarium with an emphasis on education to children. Look for my book in the Research section! https://aquarium.ucsd.edu/

ODE TO LAZINESS – PABLO NERUDA

“She showed me on the sand small broken bits of marine matter, driftwood, seaweed, stones, sea birds’ feathers     & like black crosses, cormorants clinging to the rocks…along the coast all afternoon, sun & fog waged war.  …I took off my shoes beside the fire, sand spilled from them & soon I was falling fast asleep.”  — Pablo Neruda
