Just 15 minutes from our house in Oceanside are the Cerezo Bluffs tide pools. These tide pools never disappoint (as long as you know where to look). Today the low tide was -1.7 feet, exposing all sorts of incredible intertidal zone organisms. For two hours we scoured the bright green seagrass, finding shrimp, brittle stars, octopuses, and countless California brown sea hares (some of the smallest I have ever found). The moon eventually replaced the sun in the sky, blanketing the intertidal organisms in protective darkness as they wait for the tide to rise again.

You really are the sea creature whisperer! I love this post. Well documented and photographed. Such amazing marine life found and your sunset images, WHOA.
Thank you. It is always so much fun.
