    1. The ocean certainly gives an amazing feeling of piece doesn't it, EC? At least when it's not angry.

  5. Hi Sandra - the ocean is where we walked from ... well perhaps that's an exaggeration! ... but so much is there to which we are linked. The aquarium must have been wonderful to see ... cheers Hilary

      My only problem is the crowds. I guess it's a matter of timing.

  17. Hello Sandra, hope all is well with you and yours.
    The months of July and August are busy times for me so my blog posts and visits have been, and are, a little sporadic!

    Lovely pictures of the aquarium, I love these places.

  19. We've so abused our seas and other water resources. The aquariums are a great way to see the natural beauty and perhaps stir more and more conservation measures. Great pictures.
