Galloping toward the Philocrites summer hiatus.

If New England readers still need another day trip to make the summer complete, may I recommend the Origami Now! exhibit at Salem's Peabody Essex Museum. When Mrs P and I visited a few weekends back, there were adults on hand to help kids fold their own origami creatures, but the art is marvelous for all ages. Here are more of my photos from the exhibit. And just this past weekend, I visited the Boston Aquarium for the first time. I know! Eleven years in Boston and I never went inside. It's now one of my favorite places. The special jellyfish exhibit is beautiful and disturbing: Global warming is apparently turning out great for jellies, bad for the fish we like to eat.

See you again when I've added a few more freckles to my face. Don't worry, PeaceBang, I've got moisturizer with sunscreen.

Have a great time!

I can't believe you had never been to the New England Aquarium. But hey, better late than never.

There was a great jellies exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium a few years ago when I was living in the Bay Area. Great stuff.

Thanks for the fine blogging. Enjoy the break.
