Undersea Beasties

I just wanted to share a collection of fantastic creatures of the deep- all pictures from my trip to the Natural History Museum in Washington DC. Truly amazing!

If you’re in Toronto next weekend, you absolutely MUST head down to the waterfront to see and board the 14 majestic tall ships that will be docking for the Canada Day weekend. Friday night there will also be a showing the film The Bounty !

The ship pictured above is the visiting German brig, Roald Amundsen

For those wishing for a truly stylish outing,  join the Toronto Steampunk Society on Thursday night for a tour and group photos at the waterfront. Costumes are, as always, strongly encouraged.

For more information on the tall ships, visit the waterfront festival website.

And for those of you who can’t make it, don’t worry, I’ll take lots of pictures!

I fell in love with this delightful fountain in Koblenz, Germany. I wish I knew the story behind it, as it seemed completely out of place just outside of a modernish mall exit.
