Today’s Photo of the Day, I’ll admit, is a little strange. I am not sure if anyone, aside from myself, will see the beauty in it. We spent the past two days relaxing at the beach. The “winter chill,” which here in Abu Dhabi is, of course, in the 70s, has subsided and temperatures are swiftly heating back up into the 90s. We are trying to get out as often as we can before the summer swelter sets in. Yesterday and today at very low tide, we stumbled on these odd balls of sand.
X-ray of a Whelk Part of why I love living here in Abu Dhabi so much is that the sea is my frontyard. Suburbia was never very easy for me. Honestly, give me a beach to walk and warmish weather, and I am happy for life. So, I offer you this set of photos of X-rays of shells that I stumbled on from the Huffington Post. I think they are beautiful. Please have a look, if winter has you down in the dumps. Spring is almost here. The beach is calling you! Nautilus Shell X-ray. Click
