Yesterday Along The Seashore



After the storms we had last week and larger than normal waves, much of the sand along the beach has been swept away and reefs we haven't seen in 25 years are exposed. Walking at low tide yesterday, we came upon this stranded starfish, washed ashore and upside down. We moved it to a tide pool.



There were reefs in both directions, sandbars, cobblestones and clusters of sea shells.



The tides are extreme this time of the year, especially when the moon is coming full.

Hi GW

the black rock formation looked like a cluster of whales lying together...

I'm glad they weren't beached...

Your star fish reminded me of the starfish story...
I love the power of the ocean and the tides...

Happy days
