This is a post about what you find as you are walking along and then suddenly, for whatever reason, you look down at your feet. This is exactly what happened as we were walking along the beach at Tracey Road beach access. The tide had just gone out, the rocks were slippery, I looked down before taking a step and WOW. I could not believe what lay immediately in front of me.
The image at the top is roughly a 12 inch by 12 inch area. The life thriving in this little area is amazing: little starfish and a big one, a crab, sea urchins, barnacles, shells (with occupants…I checked!), kelp, a weird funky green bug and a “tubie thing” (technical term, LOL! it is on the bottom edge of the image under the big starfish if anyone has a clue what it is).
