  1. I just finished reading a post about a gal's husband and friends that hunted for sea urchins in the Greek Islands. Then I check out your flickr page and spot those sea urchin eggs and I'm like---WAHHHHHHHH! Life is not fair. I love them things, in sushi, spaghetti, fresh from a recent catch at sea...

    Sigh :-(


Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
