    Over the many years of sailing and traveling, it is amazing what one will collect.  On the beach sometimes you are lucky enough to come across little crab skeletons which if seen early enough after it’s demise can be preserved as vivqualiid as it’s live state. So after many years of collecting and weeding through […]
