Ocean backs away

and denizens are caught sunbathing

in small pools.


Tidal pool at Seal Rock, Oregon

Tidal pool at Seal Rock, Oregon

Can you see the  Green Anemones” clinging to the rock on the left?  You can see how windy it is from the ripples on the water!  It was a stormy day.

Here’s a tidal pool rich in sea life!  This one is the touch pool at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.  That big anemone on the right grabbed my finger and numbed the tip with its anaesthetic.  On the left are abalone, the black frill just feels like a satin ribbon.  The star fish are rough.
