In the Tidepools

Tiny shrimp, hermit crabs, anemones, California black sea hares, and more.

The tidepools are filled with fascinating creatures living in a unique intertidal ecosystem.

It was a cool and cloudy day when we decided to take a trip down to Carlsbad to check out the tidepools. The perfect day to look for wildlife.

Anemones cover themselves in shells to protect them during periods of low tide.

Look at that gorgeous color!

 

The sea hares were active and fun to watch.

It was a fun afternoon down at the water — the perfect outing on such a day!
