Today we celebrate World Ocean Day! 

As many of you know, we’ve made our home right along the central coast of California.

Every day we wake up to the sea gulls, sea lions, harbor seals, and pelicans. During certain months of the year, whales stop by on their migration routes. On most days, I wake up and enjoy a lazy cup of coffee, work on this blog, and am filled with peace as the sun rises over the bay (when it’s not foggy).

All of this is truly amazing, and not something to be taken for granted.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is right down the street from our house and is heavily involved in ocean conservation. They oversee the sustainable seafood watch and work to educate the public (individuals and commercial restaurants) on how to choose seafood options that will protect species – and entire ecosystems – in the ocean. You can get their updated app and guide from their website.

Did you know, for example, that New Zealand salmon was a great choice, but Chilean salmon was not?

And because this is a cooking-themed blog, here’s a classic.

Broiled Salmon, 1922.

P.S.  The aquarium also has a live sea otter cam that is pretty fun to watch.  

Here’s to World Ocean Day!
