Carpenteria Seal Habitat, CA
photos by Petrina Lesko, March 2011



I am linking this post with Watery Wednesday and the Cloaked Monk's Blog - March Challenge for the 9th which is Exploration.

Exploring the Carpenteria Seal Habitat was pure bliss the other day.  We had a fabulous time taking pictures and watching the babies exploring the big world, playing in the waters, mothers always right beside them.

The haiku is perfect for the pictures...makes me feel the trepidation that the babies feel (lucky Mama is close by)
