Weekly Winners July 24, 2011

Photos for Lotus's Weekly Winners are from a variety of activities this week. The beach, the coast aquarium, the last gathering of the children's cohort and families and the farmers market.


Jelly love




So nice of the designers to provide the beautiful blue background. 



Jellies are fascinating. No brains. They aren't called jellyfish anymore because of the misnomer: they aren't fish.



Anemone, another of my favorites. 



I was hoping I could fool viewers into believing I was SCUBA diving. 



The weather wasn't great but we managed one glorious sunset. 



These four wonderful kids will be "graduating" to preschool in a month. We'll miss them! 



Ms. P and her mama.


Plenty of food for these guys. They may be scavengers but I love 'em. It's a nostalgia thing. 



When you're short, you learn to compensate.



Beautiful beets.

Shadow Shot 07-24-11

Tracy hosts a shadow shot meme every week from Brisbane Australia.  Here's my submission for this week. Taken at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport last week: A tank of little silver fish with their shadows on the tank wall behind.

Weekend Reflections: Wading in the ocean

James hosts Weekend Reflections. I haven't participated for a long time. We spent the weekend at the Oregon coast and witnessed a glorious sunset Sunday night. Some hearty souls, reflected in the shallows, braved the cold Pacific water.
