Tidepools and Seals

We headed over to Palmer Point, where there were supposed to be some great tidepools, at 2 in the afternoon--low tide.  Like all the coastline around here, it is a bit of a hike down to the beach, or in this case, the rocky ledge where the tidepools are.  We were a bit late for low tide, as it turned out, but the tidepools were disappointing.  We had seen tidepools with more life and beauty in Laguna Beach, on the coast of overpopulated Southern California.  I had some fun shooting a hermit crab and a dead octopus washed up on the beach, then Lynnae spied some harbor seals hanging on the rocks offshore--or should I say posing!

This dead octopus was about 3 feet long.  I found the suckers to be fascinating.
Hermit crabs are common, but I liked this guy's blue socks

Doesn't this guy look like he is smiling!

  1. ClamPuddingPaddler! I appropriate your work. You shared awesome images. I will go California after my coast bus. Always attract me the Flora and Fauna. My friends told me when you go this region; don’t miss to visit the Tide pools. You can see their sea stars, mussels and clams.
