Shown with my water bottle for scale.

The fisheries science building houses the one of the largest and most diverse collections of western Atlantic marine and estuarine fish and marine mammal specimen collections in the world.

Preserved sea turtles as well.

And this sea turtle shell showing clearly the spine of the animal (sea turtles can't pop out of their shells as portrayed in cartoons!).

Doctoral student Heidi Geisz, who gave a great tour of the fisheries science building, along with Erica.

The lovely home of another VIMS hostess and friend, Marcia Berman.

Bob and Marcia's boats, docked right at their lovely back yard.

Marcia and Bob were kind enough to take me down the Piankatank River on their boat.
