Feeling crabby?

I hope you’re not tired of videos from the Aquarium of the Pacific. I’ll be getting back to photos but I had such fun watching the various creatures at the aquarium move around that I just had to share another one. This giant crab was really, really big and watch for a photo bombing fish.

Happy Monday. We had a safe trip home and while we had a wonderful three weeks, it’s also good to be home. I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight and tomorrow I’ll be cleaning, running errands, etc. As I’ve said before, it’s a blessing to go somewhere enjoyable and to have a place to come back to that you enjoy and we are blessed.

Once my trip to California was finalized, my husband instructed me to find a tidal pool. Because I always do what he says (cough, cough), over the Fourth of July weekend, Shannon and I went to the type of beach I prefer: a beach with lots of rocks and a bit of beach, although it was too chilly to be interested in lying in the sun, even if it had been out.  We managed to find a parking spot in the lot, then took the long, steep path to the beach.  I was relieved to see the following sign, banning what would have been much too much visual information for me!

We’d timed it so we’d be there are low tide, so as to have the best chance of finding something of interest exposed.  Keeping one eye on the rocks, we tried each before stepping, while keeping the other eye on the pools of water, searching for interesting sea life of any kind. I was hoping for starfish, but although we didn’t find any, we did find a number of other photogenic and interesting critters.
