For a woman with, let's say, issues, about the coastline here, it was a pretty low-key day, safety-wise. This despite the official notices:
We saw many critters:
These lovely anemones get their green from algae which continues to photosynthesize inside of them.
Color inspiration was everywhere. Do you think the hermit crabs evaluate their potential houses on aesthetic grounds?
After all of our research, and identifying creatures, and talking about tidal zones and why the rocks on the way to the coast were tipped to the side (hint: we're on a tidal plate), the real learning might have been social. How long can you play "Let's lasso each other" before someone gets hurt?
