Tide Pooling

This weekend we went to a beach nearby to do some “tide pooling”. It was a little chilly, so we steeped some tea, bundled both the kids up, and stuck them in backpacks. We called some friends of ours and they met us there, too. The ocean has seemed so very blue lately! I am not sure if it’s been my imagination or if something in the atmosphere is just making the water look a really bright blue. It’s beautiful though!

On our adventure we found tons of purple sea urchins, a small black crab, a hermit crab, and several really cool types of water plants and seaweed.

Cliff slept the whole time, but Olivia enjoyed finding some pretty shells and watching the many sea birds.

We even saw dolphins (or maybe porpoises). It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning!
