Something beautiful from the beach
This cheery platter is one of my favorites, and it came from a favorite spot. I bought it six or seven years ago at the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center on General Booth Boulevard in Virginia Beach, Va.
The aquarium is famous for its diverse sea life, and it was a regular fun spot for my children to visit. Typically I avoid museum gift shops -- the offerings are often overpriced or cheesy, but in this case I wanted to support the aquarium and I couldn't take my eyes off the platter. The circular fish pattern in green, blue and red is still one of my favorites -- a go-to addition for any special gathering. Happy Wednesday, friends!
