The secret lives of seahorses...

On the third day we headed south to Monterey seeking a quiet spot on the beach. It took exactly two days for me to get officially tired of the crowds in San Fran.

It so happened that Monterey is home to a fabulous aquarium. We always like to pretend we are visiting the aquarium for the kids, but truth be told I am so in my element surrounded by sea life. (if only there weren't so many people there!)

I got to satisfy my urge to plunge hands into icy water and gently touch the sea stars.

The best exhibit for me was the seahorses. Such beautiful, graceful creatures. The photo is of a wall sculpture. I just love it....

  1. Sounds like you are having a good time and I bet you are storing up lots of ideas. Back in the day, Jim & I had a salt-water aquarium and I had a couple seahorses in it...they were amazing to watch. The best part was that I caught them...we would drag up Sargasso weed from the ocean and there were always dozens of sea creatures hiding in it.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!
