Abalone


Well, today a guest GAVE me an abalone! He cleaned it, showed me how to fillet it, and gave me his secret recipe for cooking it. I cannot WAIT(!) to get home and fix it. The ocean was at its lowest tide this morning. About 10-12 divers on our beach. The picture was taken early in the morning (not much sun) and shows the low tides and abalone divers getting ready to go in the water. Hard to imagine from this picture how beautiful it is. Every little nook and cranny in the dark rocks has sea life. The tide pools are incredible here. I'll get a better picture early morning tomorrow. In the meantime, click on this one, it will expand and make it easier to see.
