It has been a long hard week. I worked until about 10 last night and worked from home most of today. I am so glad that I had a fun evening to look forward to.
My dear friends, Lowell and Barbara, invited our pastor and I to join them as their guests to the Volunteer Gala at the Monterey Aquarium. They are very active there. I had such a lovely time. It was pretty neat to see the exhibits at night. I have been meaning to see the seahorse exhibit for about two years. They are amazing creatures and the exhibit was magnificent.
It was fun to put on a nice outfit and my sparkly beads for a special dinner and conversation with my dear friends. Dinner was exceptional, but the best part was that they had the most delicious little cupcakes for dessert.
I am so proud of my friends and the work that they put in as docents. The aquarium is truly a gem here on the Monterey Peninsula and I am proud of their research and protection of the oceans and wetlands.
