Tide Pools




This morning at 7am the low tide for the day was at -1.4 feet, so we decided to head out to the coast and explore some tide pools.   It was a perfect day for observing sea anemones, sea stars, sea urchins, seaweed, and we even found an abalone shell.  We had the place almost to ourselves until the school bus unloaded eager elementary school kids at 9:30am.   Not shown are the elephant seals that were taking advantage of resting near the tide pools.   More pictures below:
