See what I am talking about:
The tide was really low, so there were lots of tide pools to explore:
Unfortunately I was not wearing proper foot wear for this. I almost took a good spill but caught myself before I fell! Looking in the tide pools is really fun though. There are all sorts of tiny sea creatures to be seen. Next time I'll try to wear better footwear so I can get pictures.
Here are some other candid shots from the beach:
One of the things that I love about living where I do is that I can go to the beach in January. Of course the water is too cold to swim, but just the ability to be out and about and not freeze my butt off is something that I really value. I cannot imagine living anywhere else!
