**********************

July 2016, My family just got back from a wonderful vacation in California. One of our outings was to Sea World in San Diego and I learned something to help me sing OCTOPUS’S GARDEN.

You’d think I’d have wondered if there really was such a thing as an Octopus’s Garden and looked into it by now, but alas, I had not, until I saw this sign at San Diego’s Sea World right beside an octopus tank:

The sign reads,

“These octopuses hunt in muddy and sandy habitats and rocky reefs. They return to their lair with a feast of mussels, scallops, or crustaceans.  Discarded shells litter the entrance to their lair – often called an “octopus’ garden.”
