    When I was very young, my great aunt took me to some kind of sea life museum. (this was before Sea World). It was either in Fort Worth or Dallas if I recall this correctly. Anyway, there were turtles there in big glass aquariums that ran the length of the walls. They were of massive size. I was afraid, but mesmerized by them. This shot made me recall that memory. Great stuff! :))

  • I can almost feel you mesmerized on that edge of fear and wonder, Sharon! Thanks for dropping by! AMR (My hubby took several of your t-shirts on this trip to Little Cayman!)

    Hi, again! This came across my feed when Sharon faved it and I thought, that looks like an A.M. Ruttle image. Sure enough, it is. It’s beautiful, reminding me of the old Japanese Gamera movies…:-)) Well after all, Gamera could fly! Looks like a good time.

  • :-), isn’t that fun to spot the maker’s style before you see the maker? Thanks so much for dropping in, wg! AMR
