Celebrating 8-9-10 with a -2.34

Freakin’ low tide again people.  In the midst of this celebration I went to the shoreline of the park and had it all to myself.  What an event there was, stuff everywhere, those unsuspecting little animals got my camera in their face only to be left alone in wanting of the returning tide.  Good stuff.  The results are as follows:  If you like this there are some great high res shots on my site click HERE.

This blobby “wiener shaped thing” is a sea cucumber.  It’s kinda squishy but fun to find because if you give them a little squeeze they squirt water.

Seemingly ever present the chiton I ate one once it was pickled kinda gross it chewed like leather.

Sponge, beautiful and simple there is purple, green and yellow that I have seen.

A little gruesome This salmon got caught in the barrier net of the nearby salmon hatchery.

CRAB!~

CRAB! close up of the ocular sensor of a crab.

That one salmon caught in the net did a really good job holding still so I could get a few shots of his “Fish eye lens”.

Beautiful shot of the hermit crab color.

This was neat there was a hermit crab that was using a barnacle shell as a house.

I waited for a while to get the above shot I eventually grabbed him and put him on a rock to get a better look, after which I carefully put him back in his tide pool.
