Last week our son and DIL rented a house at Newport Beach for the week and we joined them for 2 days...here are some of the photos I took...
(Click on any photos to enlarge...you'll be amazed!)
I've possibly seen star fish in a marine world type setting, but not in their natural habitat
These guys don't look like star fish to me
I've never seen this color of star fish either
Okay, so taking a photo on top of a yellow sand bucket isn't exactly photographic genius...lol
Lots of mollusks right where we found the star fish
I must tell you that while taking these photos, I was still wearing my jean shorts and a blouse because it was cloudy and a bit chilly for me...I stepped backwards to avoid getting hit by a wave and stepped into a huge hole and fell down on my backside...not a pretty sight!
Mr AVO said "Oh, that was the hole I told the kids to avoid"...well, you get my train of thought here I'm sure!!! And of course, there were plenty of spectators watching the entire episode.
The great part of this was that I SAVED my camera from getting wet!!!
Oh, and a disclaimer here...NO star fish were injured in the taking of these photos!
The kids took those 2 on the bucket back to where they found them...hopefully no worse for the wear.
Thanks for the visit today...your comments are always appreciated.
I'm joining Mary's fun Mosaic Monday party today...please give her a visit at Little Red House
