And we found a surprise:
This nice little shell, balanced on my slipper, had the animal inside.
So Alex, a better pitcher than I, tossed it back in the water. You can see in the photo above a bit of the animal. He said, as he prepared to throw it, that the animal had come out a bit more. Glad it didn't die. And I have looked in my shell book for it and once again noted that I am not great at identifying shells! I'll look again and let you know what I find.
And more from the coloring book:
It is fun to choose colors for these pictures...nothing like the real ones, of course, but still a good stress reducer.
And I found out what my hubby didn't buy me for Christmas, as well as what he did:
This is the one he did buy me...other than the eyes, quite a good representation.
Now, I have never seen an octopus with a top hat, nor one with spectacles, but Creme Brulee is the true way you can see that this isn't a real ocean photo. But we enjoy it all anyway! This is the pillow he didn't buy me. Yes, it is possible to have too many octopuses! Can't believe I said that....
If you pray, please pray I am able to get in the water next weekend to see the "real deal" in their natural habitat!
