There is really nothing about this post that in any way relates to gardening, but I think most gardeners are nature lovers so I offer this up to you.
Chitons, don't know what kind.
Each hole inhabited by a Purple Sea Urchin, looks like a condo complex!
It's a huge condo complex. Evey hole bored by a sea urchin.
Coralline Alge encrusted rocks with some sea grass as well.
Seaweeds, don't remember which kinds.
Seaweed doesn't have roots, it pulls nutrients from the water across its entire surface, thus the texture which increases surface area and increases water flow over the surface.
A seaweed called "Dead Mens Fingers" because it's texture reputedly
feels like water logged dead flesh.
Some sea grass at bottom left also.
There is so much in this photo that it's hard to describe.
Sea Urchins, Anemones, Orange Sponges, Ochre Stars, Carniverous Chiton.....
An interesting rock formation with dried seagrass which looks like hair.
The seagrass will revive when it is immersed in sea water again.
Ochre Sea Star
Purple Sea Urchins and A Sea Anemone
Anemones exposed and closed up for protection from drying.
They remind me of Thumbprint Cookies!
A gorgeous crab, don't know what kind.
More Anemones and a bunch of snails.
The rock formations are beautiful at this beach.
The sun was setting as we left.
