Sea Urchins

A better photo - Robert took it with his camera which takes close-ups which mine refuses to.
I'm afraid I haven't been very good with visiting other blogs lately since we have had (delightful) house guests in the little house for 10 days. I feel a bit out of the loop but will try to get back to normal soon.

Hello Elizabeth! I love this photo of urchins. I didn't know it was possible to make them look so delicate. Raw urchin (uni) chopped straight off the fisherman's boat is a real treat!

Hi Elizabeth,

Adore this pic of sea urchins.

Thanks for your comment on my blog.
Here is the link to the post on the meme. You can copy the headings you need from there.

These are so Architectural!

With a bit of sub structure they could go straight to Moscow's red square or a hundred domed and cupola'd cities

Hey Harriet said...

That's a cute photo! It looks like the little crab is camera-shy & he is trying to escape from being in shot. He wasn't quite fast enough though!

Hope you've had a super time with your house guests :)

The sea urchins fascinate me. There's a wonderful mother/daughter artist team on Etsy who make the most spectacular jewelry from the sea urchins they find on the coast of Turkey. Their blog is http://star-of-the-east.blogspot.com

I remember picking up sea urchin shells when visiting the Dominican Republic a few years back. I was fascinated by them, and they are very fragile. x
