Sunshine and a low tide this morning, and so of course the reef beckoned…
I saw the usual culprits, including a couple good-sized California Sea Cucumbers. This one is about 15″ long (he’s under water, so it’s not the sharpest photo):
Wanna know their super-power?
Wouldn’t that be a handy skill? Oh no, a bad guy’s chasing me. Wait, let me spew my intestines on the ground…and hey, throw in my liver for good measure. *bad guy slips in the mess* Yay, I win!
I also saw this ling cod trapped in a tide pool:
I’m not sure he has any super-powers, unless flipping around like crazy when people get too close is a super-power. Don’t worry, fishie, the tide’s on its way in.
And then there were these guys, doing the tango on a carpet of sand and seaweed:
(Seriously, how can you not love tangoing starfish?)
And now I’m refreshed, relaxed, renewed. The ocean (and its critters) does that for me…that’s one of its super-powers. What has super-refresh-and-relax-powers for you?
