A Blue View: The star of this week's podcast is the nudibranch! http://ow.ly/KuFYY

Epitomizing the expression “You are what you eat,” these toxic sea slugs derive their vibrant hues from their prey, which ranges from algae and corals to anemones and even other nudibranchs!

See you next week for our second family vacation! Our kids chose a Baltimore vacation instead of birthday parties (12 & 6), AND they understand that they will only get one gift from us. What kid does that? The Inner Harbor is super friendly, safe, clean and affordable. We ventured out into the neighborhoods close to the inner harbor and were amazed how helpful the natives were. Absolutely delightful!
