Corona Del Mar Tide Pools


In honor of the first day of Summer, I decided to share some pictures I took last Thursday at the tide pools. My husband and I took advantage of having the day off while the kids were at their last day of school, Heehee. We take them here plenty of times, but it's nice some time's with just the two of us.


If you click on this mosaic and enlarge it, You can just about see in the center photo, that someone added a bronze sculpture of a mother and baby seals. How neat is that?

If you enlarge this photo you can see a yellow speckled crab. I've never seen one this color, it really makes him blend in with the tide pool. He's in the center bottom between two rocks, do you see him? And aren't the turquoise colored sea enemies cool?
Here are some more enemies and some golden seaweed and green sea grass. Corona Del Mar has a lot of seaweed which is good for the marine life.
I love the color of the rock, goldish, orangeish, reddish. The little critters with round flat shells are a type of sea snail, like abalone.
The water is so clean and clear and the rocks are so lovely.
These are a type of barnacle, waiting for the tide to come in.
Such beautiful colors, I really love coming here.
This is a portion of the tide pools that you can actually take a dunk in, it's like a private little swimming pool!

One of the secrets of a happy marriage is to find time for "dates." Good going!
