This was taken while at Mote Marine as well the same day that the seahorses were taken. Like I said at the facility they rehabilitate marine mammals this is one of the dolphins that lives there full time he is not ready to go back out into the wild just yet. The beautiful thing about the work that they do there is that once an animal is able to go back into the wild they help them return in a safe and healthy way.

If you have not been out to Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota you really should take an afternoon and go to see what is new there. I hadn't been in years and on a recent visit I was delighted by all of the beautiful sea life. Not only do they have a variety of local species in tanks for you to view they also do research on marine life and take in sick and injured mammals for rehabilitation. This tank of seahorses really caught my eye. I thought it would be a good first Ruby Tuesday.

I've been off for a while - I've been away and when we got back company came into town. We have been having a nice visit pretty much just hanging out going to dinner the usual stuff. Yesterday was a good day very busy- it started out in the morning going to the Venice Art Fest some of the work there was incredible to say the least. Then late in the afternoon we took our motorcycles to downtown Ft. Myers for their bi-monthly bike night. This is the Shadow Shot I took along the way. It was so much fun the ride down was sooo nice the ride back a bit cool but good none the less. While there we had dinner and walked around - they close off Main Street for about 6 /8 blocks or so there are vendors and there were several DJ's playing music. On our way there I noticed our shadow while we were riding and tried my best to capture the moment. It was a good day.
