Friday morning Mabel and Daddy took MUNI out to San Francisco's Ocean Beach. They removed shoes and socks, walked in shallow water at the edge of the Pacific and picked up many objects from the sand. Daddy washed these after Mabel's nap, about the same time I came over to visit. And that is how I chanced to photograph the sorting and examination of each shell and bit of seaweed and rock.
If other examples were lacking, this one would be sufficient to indicate that Mabel has inherited the curatorial gene that has played a large part in the careers of more than one close relative.
