Here are some horseshoe crabs I saw on a recent beach walk in NJ. They are so cool and docile! Their prehistoric look gives away the fact that they've been on Earth for something like 500 million years!
I've been super busy lately...I'm in the process of getting SCUBA certified! I have to complete four open water dives after I complete my pool work and written tests. I'll probably do my dives in the Shark River, which is thankfully named for the fossilized shark teeth found there.
Now that I'm learning to dive, I keep daydreaming about all of the places I'd like to go to. I just read an article about diving near the Maya Reef off the coast of the Yucatan in Mexico. It sounds so cool! Apparently it's the second largest reef after The Great Barrier Reef of Australia (where I'm hopefully going next summer). The Yucatan also has Mayan ruins like Tulum, right on the beach. Thanks to The Urban Vegan's posts about Playa del Carmen, I know it's definitely possible to eat well as a vegan traveling in the Yucatan. I'm definitely looking into it!
On a different note, I have delicious vegan ice cream reviews coming soon...
