I do find the denizens of the deep incredibly beautiful.
And some days I would love to go back to the ocean...

Gorgeous photos. Love the turtles, and wondered who got in the photo with the turtle. Really enjoyed the aquarium shots.

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

From where I sit you could post aquarium photos every single day! They are wonderful -- a beautiful and magical world beneath the sea.

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.

All the best Jan

Birgit said...

Sandra Cox said...

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

Sandra Cox said...

I think that's my son's shoes reflected there.
Glad you liked them:)

Sandra Cox said...

Those were the days.

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.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Val. Glad you enjoyed:)
Hugs back,

Sandra Cox said...

The ocean and aquarium...both filled with wonders.
Have a great one, Hilary.

Susan Kane said...

It is almost hypnotic to be near an aquarium.

Sandra Cox said...

They are a lot of fun, Alex.
My only problem is the crowds. I guess it's a matter of timing.

Sandra Cox said...

It sure is, Andrew.

Sandra Cox said...

Glad you enjoyed it, Regine:)

Sandra Cox said...

He very well may be.

Sandra Cox said...

That would be fun, Donna.
I've always wanted an arboritum.

Hope you are enjoying your summer prodigiously, Jan. And that all the busyness is for fun.
